Scientists have identified various chemicals created and used by humans, such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), as the cause of this destruction, and bans on uses of these chemicals have begun in some countries. Did they drift with ice floes and icebergs into the North Atlantic? When completed, it will consist of a cubic kilometer of ice that has been instrumented with nearly 5,000 detectors to find these elusive particles and determine their source in the universe.

This was the ninth in a series of Elisabeth and Henry A. In this study, we assess regional differences in SO2 emission control efficiencies in China through the modeling analysis of four scenarios of SO2 emissions, all of which aim at reducing the national total SO2 emissions by 8% or 2.3 Tg below the 2010 emissions level, the target set by the current 12th FYP (2011-2015), but differ in the spatial implementation.
