In a new paper published in Scientific Reports today, scientists from NILU and other leading international partners show that global climate models are able to reliably calculate historical sulfur trends in accordance with observations.
August 31st, 2018: More than thirty scientists from all over the world, in conjunction with regulators from agencies across the globe, have jointly outlined a set of needs, goals, and actions to help assess and manage the diverse and widely used group of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) in the future.
Air quality in Europe is getting better. However, a significant proportion of Europe’s population still lives in cities and areas where at times, noise and air pollution may lead to health problems. Norwegian scientists are now tasked with leading the work of compiling the knowledge base the decision-makers in Europe need to give us better air and quality of life.
From the NILU Annual Report 2017: During the last decade, the need for information and data has exploded, and this “data revolution” has not stopped short of science. In environmental research, data have become more and more important – to the point that scientists now even know what your fireplace looks like.
A new study in Nature Geoscience unveils a need of revising previous ethane and propane emissions studies, as these emissions have been underestimated by more than 50%. Such revision could in turn improve our understanding of the forceful and related methane emissions, still largely enigmatic to atmospheric sciences.
