What effects does pollution have on the weather?
Some Air Pollutants Cause the Climate to Warm
The recent increase in greenhouse gas pollution is trapping excess heat and causing the climate to warm. Air pollution includes greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide. Greenhouse gases cause the climate to warm by trapping heat from the Sun in the Earth’s atmosphere.
How does cold weather affect air pollution?
When the weather gets cold enough, exhaust from vehicles and homes becomes visible in the air. The vapor is more visible in the air and the levels of pollution are higher in the winter. Sources of pollution, like industrial emissions are constant throughout the year, no matter the season.
Does rain improve air quality?
Studies have shown that rainfall can improve air quality. The larger the initial concentration of particulate matter, the better the rainfall cleaning effect is, and the clearer effect of PM10 is better than that of PM2.5 (Zhou et al., 2020).
