An interesting article appeared in the journal Nature. Just sharing it.

Yes, because everyone in RSP reads journals like this:

Nucleation rates J were measured under neutral (Jn), galactic cosmic ray (Jgcr) and π+ beam (Jπ) conditions, corresponding to ion-pair concentrations of about 0, 650 and 3,000 cm−3, respectively. Both Jgcr and Jπ comprise the sum of neutral and ion-induced nucleation rates, whereas Jn measures the neutral rate alone.

Yes, notably the news-feed which linked this article also had one on CLOUD.

It was the music that almost killed us.

I need an abstract of the abstract.

These results show that, in regions of the atmosphere near amine sources, both amines and sulphur dioxide should be considered when assessing the impact of anthropogenic activities on particle formation.

So they should be considered - as in what? Do they or do they not contribute to climate change, according to this article?

The article is about the experiment examination of how exactly human activities could lead to climate change. A problem with climate change models is that we have amazingly detailed evidence for the overall big picture details but the smaller details from which the big picture arises are more mysterious. That makes both modelling climate change and practically dealing with it extremely difficult. The article deals with the atmospheric chemistry going on, although it cannot claim to reflect all processes involved necessarily.

Someone citing actual science in RSP? I think my brain will explode now.

More on topic: So it sounds like we need more acid rain. zombie

Am I the only one who read it as "anime" the first time? I can see the headlines now:

Well perhaps not everyone... but a good chunk of us do.



Some of us even WRITE stuff like that. Marc's pending journal article he posted a link to here sometime back was really interesting. And I know I have linked nuclear clean-up papers here a couple of times in the past when people asked to see some of my published work.
