Western Japan has just struggled through its coldest winter in 32 years.

The average temperature was more than 2C below usual and the conditions at times were extreme.

The ozone layer - which protects us from harmful ultraviolet radiation - is recovering at the poles, but unexpected decreases in part of the atmosphere may be preventing recovery at lower latitudes

The impact of black carbon, emitted by aeroplanes, on monsoon, glaciers and ozone layer is "uncertain", but its sustained emission could lead to warming of the atmosphere at 10-12 km altitude, the

Taking a small step towards creating a Smart City, Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) is all set to gain and give information on real-time noise pollution, the ozone layer, oxygen concentration

Attribution of Antarctic ozone recovery to the Montreal protocol requires evidence that (1) Antarctic chlorine levels are declining and (2) there is a reduction in ozone depletion in response to a chlorine decline. We use Aura Microwave Limb Sounder measurements of O3, HCl, and N2O to demonstrate that inorganic chlorine (Cly) from 2013 to 2016 was 223 ± 93 parts per trillion lower in the Antarctic lower stratosphere than from 2004 to 2007 and that column ozone depletion declined in response.

Summer monsoon season 2011 was highlighted with unprecedented rainfall in some districts of Punjab in the second week of August 2011 causing significant damage to public and private properties. An attempt has been made in this paper to identify the observational aspects, main synoptic system, Physical process and thermodynamic features leading to such unusual rainfall in Punjab recorded on 13th August, 2011.
