The changes caused to the environment which are believed to be of significance for the climate are: increased surface albedo; perturbation of the carbon cycle causing variations in the atmospheric levels of CO2; local changes in the water balance; addition of particulates to the troposphere, both directly from combustion and by increasing the wind-blown dust, and perturbation of the hydrological and turbulence characteristics over areas where tall forest stands are replaced by low crops or cleared land.-from Author
