How does the emission of airborne particles affect the climate?

Recently two projects have received grants to investigate how the reactive hydrocarbons and released from Swedish spruce forests and atmospheric particles affect our climate. The first project is a grant from FORMAS given to Professor Janne Rinne who will do measurements at ICOS Sweden sites Hyltemossa and Norunda, whilst the second grant is given to ACTRIS to install measurement equipment in a 30 meter tower at the ICOS Sweden site Hyltemossa.
