On Factors Controlling Marine Boundary Layer Aerosol Optical Depth
Sea spray aerosol is one of the largest natural contributors to the global aerosol loading and thus plays an important role in the global radiative budget through both direct and indirect effects. Previous studies have shown either strong or weak relationships between marine boundary layer (MBL) aerosol optical depth (τ) and the near-surface wind speed. However, the marine τ is influenced by a wide range of factors. This study attempts to examine extra contributing factors beyond wind to better characterize MBL τ variations over the global ocean by using 4 year A-train data (2006-2010). The ...

Toward a Minimal Representation of Aerosols in Climate Models: Comparative Decomposition of Aerosol Direct, Semidirect, and Indirect Radiative Forcing Author(s):Ghan, S. J.; Liu, Xiaohong; Easter, R. C.; Zaveri, R.; Rasch, P. J.; Yoon, J.-H.; Eaton, B.Date:2012-10-01The authors have decomposed the anthropogenic aerosol radiative forcing into direct contributions from each aerosol species to the planetary energy balance through absorption and scattering of solar radiation, indirect ...

Dataset associated with "Emissions and Radiative Impacts of Sub-10 nm Particles from Biofuel and Fossil Fuel Cookstoves" Author(s):Jathar, Shantanu H.; Sharma, Naman; Bilsback, Kelsey R.; Pierce, Jeffrey R.; Vanhanen, Joonas; Gordon, Timothy D.; Volckens, JohnDate:2020Format:ZIP; RTF; CSVCombustion sources have been shown to directly emit particles smaller than 10 nm. The emission of 1-3 nm particles from biofuel or fossil-fuel cookstoves has not been studied previously, nor have the radiative impacts of ...
