Press Release 08-082 - Video
V. Ramanathan, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, discusses his UAV/Brown Cloud research.

Scientists have long understood that air pollution can impact the formation of clouds and the broader climate. Recent research by a team from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography using unmanned aerial vehicles provides new insights into how air pollution can impact the atmosphere's albedo, or rate of sunlight reflection. The research has implications for our understanding of climate change. V. Ramanathan, a professor at Scripps and the lead researcher for the project, describes the research and its findings.
