A research team working on the Indian Ocean Experiment (INDOEX) found that aerosols damage the earth's hydrological cycle.Aerosols cut down the sunlight that heats the ocean and other water-bodies which reduces the amount of evaporation.Reduced evaporation from water-bodies means less rain. Aerosols are also found to suppress rain over polluted regions. Within clouds,aerosols can limit the the size of cloud droplets, stifling the development of larger droplets that are required to form raindrops.In these ways, aerosols cut back on rain and snowfall, which can directly affect the replenishment of the world's major water-bodies and so can become the most crucial problem facing humanity.For more information on this research visit: www.indoex.ucsd.edu
 
For many Indian organisations international journals are out of reach, either because they are not available in India or because they are outrageously priced.
