Indirect and Semi-Direct Aerosol Campaign : The Impact of Arctic Aerosols on Clouds
An overview of Indirect and Semi-Direct Aerosol Campaign (ISDAC), aimed to study the impact of Arctic aerosol on clouds, is provided. The general theme of the campaign was to provide detailed observations of aerosols and clouds and gather high-quality data needed to improve the treatment of clouds and aerosols in climate models. The NRC Convair-580 was used for the in situ measurements of clouds, aerosols, and state parameters, and for active and passive remote sensing observations. The results show that ice nuclei (IN) concentrations in the Arctic are generally low, making accurate IN measurements ...

Effects of near-source coagulation of biomass burning aerosols on global predictions of aerosol size distributions and implications for aerosol radiative effects Author(s):Ramnarine, Emily
Date Submitted:2018Biomass burning is a significant global source of aerosol number and mass. In fresh biomass burning plumes, aerosol coagulation reduces aerosol number and increases the median size of aerosol size distributions, impacting ...
Examination of the potential impacts of dust and pollution aerosol acting as cloud nucleating aerosol on water resources in the Colorado River Basin Author(s):Jha, Vandana
Date Submitted:2016In this study we examine the cumulative effect of dust acting as cloud nucleating aerosol (cloud condensation nuclei (CCN), giant cloud condensation nuclei (GCCN), and ice nuclei (IN)) along with anthropogenic aerosol ...
