Why is winter air responding to pollution cuts so slowly? | Physics World
Over roughly the last decade, air quality regulations have lowered sulphur dioxide pollution in the US by nearly 70% and nitrogen oxides by around one-third. But air has improved more in the summer, with winter air pollution proving difficult to shift. The UW's Lyatt Jaeglé, professor of atmospheric sciences, and Viral Shah, a doctoral candidate in atmospheric sciences, are quoted.
