Tarballs in the Himalayan atmosphere

Some people call the Himalaya Tibet Plateau the third pole. Because this area is the largest source of snow and ice outside the North and South Pole. But glaciers have been very sensitive to climate change and human influences over the past 10 years.

And it doesn't appear to be great news when it's reported in the Environmental Science and Technology Journal of the American Chemical Society. That tarball or black crude oil was detected in the Himalayan atmosphere. The burning of เกมสล็อตฟรี fossil fuels emits light-absorbing carbonic particles Which can cling to snow and ice It may cause glaciers to melt faster. Previous research has suggested that a type of particle called black carbon is spread farther by wind. Help transport to the atmosphere of the Himalayas. But little is known about the existence of brown carbon, a particle that can form a small, viscous spherical tarball. And contains small amounts of carbon, oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur and potassium.

Using an electron microscope, approximately 28% of the thousands of particles in the air samples of the Himalayan Research Station have tarball. And the percentage goes up on days with high levels of pollution. Analysis of wind patterns and satellite data revealed large-scale combustion activity of wheat residue on the Indus Ganges Basin. The researchers estimate that tarballs on the ice surface could have a significant effect on global warming. This information is therefore important for future climate models that should be considered for long-distance tarball transport to the Himalayas.
