Subject: Health, Science
Title: Asian Brown Cloud     
Description: In this Science Update, from Science NetLinks, you'll hear about an effort to measure the pollution over Asia and assess its impact on humans and the environment. In developing areas of the world, including parts of Asia, rapid industrialization has brought about more cars, more factories, and more people to burn coal and wood for cooking purposes. Those activities throw a lot of soot and other pollutants into the air. Science Updates are audio interviews with scientists and are accompanied by a set of questions as well as links to related Science NetLinks lessons and other related resources.
