NUI Galway's Centre for Climate and Air Pollution Studies (C-CAPS) at the Ryan Institute has launched an air pollution forecast service that will help advise the public of periods of imminent outdoor pollution levels likely to exacerbate health problems, in particular, those associated with heart and lung conditions.
Professor of physics at NUI Galway, Colin O’Dowd, has won a prestigious academic award from the Institute of Physics in London.
New research initiated by teams at NUI Galway and the University of Helsinki has revealed that the true rate of global warming caused by greenhouse gases has been masked by the cooling effects of tiny airborne particles. According to the research these atmospheric aerosols — also known as particulate matter — form reflective haze and cloud layers which lead to an aerosol cooling effect. However new technologies and stricter environmental controls will see that effect reduced in the years ahead.
