How does aerosoal affect the environment?

    Some aerosols hurt the environment by reflecting sunlight back into space, therefore leading to cooling.  But at the same time, other aerosols absorb the light, causing global warming.  According to research from 2002, parts of India experienced less precipitation due to certain aerosols (more details can be seen on the link below).

    Aerosols, small airborne particles, can actually help slow down rising temperatures. Due to both human activities, like the burning of fossil fuels, and natural occurrences, like volcanic eruptions, the release of sulfate aerosols can contribute to global dimming – the cooling of the climate system. When released into the atmosphere and reflected on incoming sunlight, sulfate aerosols can decrease global warming and the rise in temperatures.
