Airborne Aerosols

Featured Video Play Icon

This numerical simulation from NASA Goddard shows the motion of particulates in Earth’s atmosphere between August 2006 and April 2007. These aerosols come from various sources including smoke, soot, dust, and sea salt. As these fine particles move through atmosphere, they can have significant effects on weather as well as climate. For example, the particles serve as nucleation sites for the condensation and formation of rain drops. (Video credit: NASA Goddard SFC)
