Particulate solar absorption is a critical factor in determining the value and even sign of the direct radiative forcing of aerosols. The heating to the atmosphere and cooling to the Earth's surface caused by this absorption are hypothesized to have significant climate impacts.

New Delhi: Temperatures are expected to soar over the next few days in Delhi and other parts of the country with the movement of monsoon clouds towards north and northwest India taking a pause. Delhi could again see 40-plus temperatures over the next couple of days though occasional thundershowers could cool the city a bit.

Mumbai There are chances of rains in Mumbai by the weekend, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said on Tuesday. If the southwest monsoon arrives by the weekend, it would be 10 days after its normal arrival.

New Delhi: There is further trouble on the monsoon front. The northward advance of the monsoon is likely to be held up by another week leading to a delay in the sowing of Kharif crops in most of central and north peninsular India.

BHUBANESWAR: With monsoon playing truant and there is no sign of its revival in the next one week, kharif operations, particularly direct sown paddy in up-land and medium land, will be considerably delayed. As majority of the cultivable area is rainfed, delay in the onset of monsoon will upset the kharif programme.
