New information on acid formation may help refine atmospheric and climate models

May 13, 2021 Atmospheric acidity is increasingly established by organic acids, such as formic acid and carbon dioxide. The former contributes to the development of aerosol particles as a precursor to raindrops and thus affects the pH of rainwater and cloud growth.. Diagram of the main emission sectors and primary emissions, meteorological and chemical processes, […]
