Cloud cycling, scavenging and aerosol vertical profiles: process sensitivity and observational constraints

Abstract:

The effects of aerosol in the atmosphere account for some of the largest uncertainties in estimates of the human impact on climate. These effects depend not only on the total mass of aerosol, but also its size distribution, mixing state and vertical profile.

Previous studies have suggested that both the size distribution and mixing state of aerosol may be strongly influenced by repeated cycling through non-precipitating cloud. The extent of this process is assessed in the HadGEM3–UK...
