sprays also emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that contribute to ground-level ozone levels, a key component of asthma-inducing smog.

Washington, April 9 (ANI): A new research by NASA scientists has suggested that much of the atmospheric warming observed in the Arctic since 1976 may be due to changes in tiny airborne particles called aerosols
Dr Paul Jackson, technical manager at BAMA, said, 'Just five years ago we estimated that only 7% of Local Authorities were collecting empty aerosols
for recycling in the UK.
But what happened to the aerosol
that was no longer wasted?
Kingdom shows several color photographs of the bold, elaborate and slickly painted murals that decorated New York's subway trains from the early 1970s to the early 1990s.
The findings show that, for a given amount of liquid water in the cloud, its reflectivity was higher on the days with higher aerosol

propellants must meet strict VOC (volatile organic compound) regulations as outlined by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Department of Transportation (DOT), and other government agencies.
In particular, light absorption by aerosol
particles such as mineral dust and black carbon (BC; thought to be the second strongest contribution to current global warming after CO2) is of fundamental importance from a climate perspective because the presence of absorbing particles (1) contributes to solar radiative forcing, (2) heats absorbing aerosol
layers, (3) can evaporate clouds and (4) change atmospheric dynamics.
