    PARIS – Surging air pollution from China and other fast-growing Asian economies has intensified winter cyclones in the Northwest Pacific, scientists announced recently.

     

    Winter cyclones in latitudes that include northwestern China, South Korea and Japan have packed stronger winds and more rain as a result of rising levels of particulate pollution, they said.

     

    The dusty fallout affects how moisture develops in clouds and how heat is distributed in storm systems, said Yuan Wang of the prestigious Jet Propulsion Laboratory at the California Institute of Technology.

     

    “The significant change of the Pacific storm intensity was estimated to start in the middle of the 1990s,†Wang said.
