Abstract

Pollution In Clouds Can Cool Earth's Capes, and air temperature data over the subtropical Climate western Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico were Shallow-layer clouds modified by pollution from ships analyzed for this study. Findings conclude that the burning fossil fuel are expected to have a cooling annual average air temperature over the southern effect on the earth's climate, reports a scientist from United States increased before the 1940s and declined afterward, while annual precipitation during the 94- NASA' s Goddard Space Flight Center, in Greenbelt, year period has slightly increased. The year-to-year Maryland. variability in both temperature and precipitation was In a recent study conducted off the California coast, high, however. Michael D. King, with co-authors Lawrence F. Radke (University of Washington), and James A. Coakley Jr. Historic data on air temperatures over adjacent (Oregon State University), used simultaneous mea- waters of the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico show surements from the NOAA-W satellite and the Uni- a pronounced maximum during World War II years, versity of Washington's C-131A research aircraft to but otherwise tend to confirm the values over land. observe "ship track" clouds. These observations The two scientists also examined a 91-year relative showed that
