"Aerosols particles damage forests and crops and affect the climate, either cooling or heating it."
Why Does NASA Measure Aerosols? Aerosols are tiny particles suspended in the earth’s atmosphere. Small particles (and PM2.5 in particular) can get deep into the lungs where they have been linked to respiratory problems (decreased lung function, asthma), cardiovascular problems, and premature mortality. They alter nutrient balance from particles that contain nitrogen in lakes and streams. These particles damage forests and crops and affect the climate, either cooling or heating it.
