Evaluation of the global climatic and ecological effects of a nuclear war requires consideration of a wide range of issues involving disciplines such as urban geography, fire mechanics, plume dynamics, cloud microphysics, aerosol physics, radiative transfer theory, atmospheric chemistry, mesoscale dynamics, global climate simulation, plant physiology, agriculture and : Steven J.

Introduction. Over a 2-year period, the Scientific Committee on Problems of the Environment (SCOPE)-Environmental Effects of Nuclear War (ENUWAR) project involved the participation of about physical and atmospheric scientists and an additional agricultural and ecological scientists from more than 30 countries around the world in a unique undertaking to assess the global consequences of Cited by: 6.

nuclear weapons, it once again will not consider one crucial question: What would be the long-term consequences to Earth’s environment. A shallow-penetrating nuclear weapon of, say, to kilotons at a 3 to 5 meter depth of burst will generate a substantial fireball that will not fade as fast as the air blast.

Detonation of a nuclear weapon in a forested area virtually guarantees fire damage at ranges greater than the range of air-blast damage. The climatic effects of a hypothetical large nuclear war have been simulated by an increasingly comprehensive series of global numerical models.

Short-term climatic effects Cited by: Using a NASA computer simulation, Oman and colleagues model the climate's response to the smoke from fires brought about by regional nuclear war.

Budyko, Georgi S. Golitsyn, Yuri A. Izrael. Also, nuclear warfare potentially has long-term biological consequences which are far more severe than those of conventional warfare. Recent discoveries have even raised the possibility that these biological effects might cause the collapse of human civilization and, perhaps, the extinction of human beings.

Deadly Climate Change From Nuclear War: A threat to human existence Steven Starr, PSR, University of Missouri Abstract. A tiny fraction of the operational nuclear arsenals, if detonated within large cities, would generate enough smoke to cause catastrophic disruptions of the global climate and massive destruction of the protective stratospheric ozone layer.

The effects of nuclear war on climate. A major nuclear war would deposit millions of tonnes of dust in the stratosphere. Some sunlight would be absorbed or reflected away from the earth by the dust, causing a decrease in the earth's temperature.

This in turn could conceivably trigger a major climatic change.modern climate models confirm that the s predictions of nuclear winter effects were, if anything, underestimates.8 The Strategic Offensive Reductions Treaty (SORT) of calls for the US and Russia each to limit their opera-tionally deployed warheads to – by December The treaty has many unusual features: warheads, rather than.Nuclear War Fought with Hiroshima-size (15 kiloton) Low-Yield Nuclear Weapons InU.S.
