What are aerosols?


Aerosols are tiny particles that are suspended in the atmosphere.They are one of the major causes for decrease in ozone layer from 1976.

Aerosols are produced naturally by volcanoes erupting, forest fires, and human activity also causes aerosols to be produced. Burning of fossil fuels, coal produces aerosol particles.

The effect of these aerosolds is to cool the earth’s atmosphere by reflecting back the sun’s rays, there by affecting the climate in our environment.
