Atmospheric Particle Streams

Researchers from NASA Goddard’s Global Modeling and Assimilation Office ran a simulation of the atmosphere that captured how winds whip aerosols around the world. Such simulations allow scientists to better understand how these tiny particulates travel in the atmosphere and influence weather and climate. This visualization shows how dust and sea salt swirl inside cyclones, carbon bursts from fires, sulfate streams from volcanoes. Credit: NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center
