Rutgers researcher explores cooling atmosphere of Southeast Unites States. Annmarie Carlton, a professor in the Department of Environmental Sciences and CECI affiliate, has been in Alabama conducting a study focused on revealing why certain parts of the country are actually cooling rather than warming along with global climate change trends. The research suggests that organic compounds in the atmosphere emitted by forests interact with emissions from human activities to form ozone which effectively blocks out the sun.
