cargo ships create more lightening

A recent study showed that the smog from massive cargo ships that criss-cross the oceans actually stimulates more lightening (up to twice as much). Another really interesting and really odd way we are altering really major processes on our planet. Short write-up about it can be found here.

I am an ecologist with broad interests in how human-induced changes alter how ecosystems function and the services that they provide. A central focus of my research is understanding how changes in biodiversity affect the flow of nutrients and energy in ecosystems. Most of this research takes place in tropical coastal ecosystems such as mangroves, seagrass beds, and coral reefs. I am an assistant professor at the University of Michigan, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology.

    Hi Jacob,

    I am interested in the topic,but there appears to be no link in “can be found here.” at the end of your post? I’m really curious to see what statistical analysis they would apply to their data as well.
