Caption: Sulphate aerosol optical thickness. The data is from January 31, 2007 for 120 hours to February 4, 2007. Sulphate (green) is the result of sulphur dioxide and sulphur trioxide interacting with other compounds in the atmosphere. Sulphate aerosols in the atmosphere are associated with the combustion of fossil fuels and also the eruption of volcanoes. Sulphate affects the global temperature. It is thought that the presence of sulphate lowers the total mean global temperature by reflecting away incoming solar radiation.
