Soot Sources, a Savvy Study, and the Tibetan Plateau

Climate model tagging technique tracks snowpack-melting particles

October 2015
A new method developed at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory tagged sources of soot from different global regions in a climate model, and tracked where it lands on China's Tibetan Plateau. Researchers determined which areas around the plateau contributed the most soot-and where. The technique also pointed to the most effective way to reduce soot on the plateau to ease the amount of warming the region undergoes.
