Investigating the potential for sea spray aerosol to mitigate coral bleaching

Mass coral bleaching events over the past decade have heightened the need for research into techniques to enhance survival of the Great Barrier Reef.Applying sea spray aerosol directly over coral reefs during periods of increased bleaching stress could mitigate bleaching by both locally reducing sea surface temperatures and by reducing incoming incident solar radiation. These effects are referred to as solar radiation management and can be broken up into the direct scattering of incoming solar radiation and via the interaction …

Precursors of atmospheric aerosols in the Southern Ocean and Antarctica

Atmospheric aerosols are tiny liquid or solid particles suspended in air. They have a significant role in the radiative balance through their direct interaction with incoming solar radiation (scattering and absorption), and indirectly through their interactions with cloud (they act as seeds on which water can condense to form clouds).Indirect effect is a much more complex problem, and involves the role of aerosols in the cloud formation and the modification of their properties such as changes to cloud reflectivity, cloud …
