Entry: Aerosols

URI: http://registry.it.csiro.au/def/agriculture/nlmp/Aerosols

A collection of airborne solid or liquid particles, with a typical size between 0.01 and 10 um (a millionth of a metre) that can remain airborne in the atmosphere for several hours, at a minimum. Aerosols may be of either natural or anthropogenic origin (for example from particulates from feedlots). Aerosols may influence local climate in directly through scattering and absorbing radiation, and indirectly, by acting as cloud condensation nuclei or modifying the optical properties. They are of particular interest in the management of the indirect greenhouse gas ammonia in the environment reflecting the adsorption of ammonia on particulates and its re-distribution in the environment.
