Black carbon is formed during the incomplete combustion of fossil fuels, biofuels, and biomass. When it is on snow and ice, it reduces the albedo (reflectivity) & therefore heats the earth by absorbing rather than reflecting light. However, unlike CO2, it only stays in the atmosphere for several days or weeks.
Is it a problem for water pollution or any type of pollution. We don’t here about it as much as carbon in the atmosphere is it dangerous at all.
