Global Distribution and Climate Forcing of Marine Organic Aerosol, Part 2. Effects on Cloud Properties and Radiative Forcing
A series of simulations with the Community Atmosphere Model version 5 (CAM5) with a 7-mode Modal Aerosol Model were conducted to assess the changes in cloud microphysical properties and radiative forcing resulting from marine organic aerosols. Model simulations show that the anthropogenic aerosol indirect forcing (AIF) predicted by CAM5 is decreased in absolute magnitude by up to 0.09 W mg-2 (7%) when marine organic aerosols are included. Changes in the AIF from marine organic aerosols are associated with small global increases in low-level in-cloud droplet number concentration and liquid water ...

Mylonitic Deformation at the Kane Oceanic Core Complex: Implications for the Rheological Behavior of Oceanic Detachment Faults Author(s):Hansen, L. N.; Cheadle, Michael J.; John, Barbara E.; Swapp, S. M.; Dick, H. J. B.; Tucholke, Brian E.; Tivey, Maurice A.; Hansen, L. N.; Cheadle, Michael J.; John, Barbara E.; Swapp, S. M.; Dick, H. J. B.; Tucholke, Brian E.; Tivey, Maurice A.Date:2013-08-23The depth extent, strength, and composition of oceanic detachment faults remain poorly understood because the grade of deformation-related fabrics varies widely among sampled oceanic core complexes (OCCs). We address this ...

Cooling Rates and the Depth of Detachment Faulting At Oceanic Core Complexes: Evidence from Zircon Pb/U and (U-Th)/He Ages Author(s):Grimes, C. B.; Cheadle, Michael; John, Barbara; Reiners, P. W.; Wooden, J. L.; Grimes, C. B.; Cheadle, Michael; John, Barbara; Reiners, P. W.; Wooden, J. L.Date:2011-03-09Oceanic detachment faulting represents a distinct mode of seafloor spreading at slow spreading mid-ocean ridges, but many questions persist about the thermal evolution and depth of faulting. We present new Pb/U and (U-Th)/He ...
