Effects of microplastics on aquatic organisms can vary depending on particle type and food availability shows a new study by researchers from ACES and colleagues from AquaBiota Research, Stockholm, published in journal PLOS One. Their results present a more complex picture of the effects of microplastics than previously thought. “Microplastics are tiny particles that are less than 5mm in size …
Clouds may have a net warming or cooling effect on climate, depending on their thickness and altitude. Artificially formed clouds called contrails form due to aircraft effluent. In a cloudless sky, contrails are thought to have minimal effect on climate. But what happens when the sky is already cloudy? In a new study published in the journal Nature Communications, scientists …
