The region with the cleanest air discovered by scientists from the USA and Australia.
Clean air was only over the Southern ocean surrounding Antarctica, said the study, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, writes “Apostrophe”.
So, in the air of the atmospheric boundary layer over the Southern ocean no aerosol particles.
During the study, the experts at special vehicle proceeded from the Australian island of Tasmania to the ice of Antarctica. Along the way, they took air samples.
Aerosols that control the properties of clouds over the Southern ocean are closely linked with biological processes occurring therein. As explained by scientists, Antarctica is probably isolated from the spread of microorganisms from the southern parts of the land.
