Regional aerosol effects on precipitation: an observational study
There have been a multitude of studies on the effects increased amounts of aerosols may have on clouds. The connection between increased cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) and cloud microphysics has been established by in situ observations as well as modeling studies. However, the impact on precipitation is less well established. Of the studies that have assessed aerosol effects on precipitation most have been limited to modeling studies or global studies using satellite data. The few observational studies that have examined these relationships have been mainly limited to data from short-lived field ...
