PNAS newsletter_ Sulfur Cycle and Global Climate Change_Maritime Transportation & Governance Warned


NB. PNAS: Publications of the National Academy of Science, USA.

Although not on the expected scale of land transportation's contribution to climate change by the International Panel on Climate Change - IPCC, the following paper on maritime transportation related role in the sulphur cycle and climate change is worth noting: ref. "Discovery and measurement of an isotopically distinct source of sulfate in Earth's atmosphere" by
Gerardo Dominguez, Terri Jackson, Lauren Brothers, Burton Barnett, Bryan Nguyen, and
Mark H. Thiemens* the latter * is the contributing author.

The paper was published online before print August 27, 2008, doi: 10.1073/pnas.0805255105 PNAS September 2, 2008 vol. 105 no. 35 12769-12773 and brought to my attention via PNAS online newsletter.

The abstract may be found via PNAS newsletter link. which also provides some main points of interest for the chemical community and radiation measurement comunities.
