Estimation of the indirect radiative effects of aerosol on climate using a general circulation model

Abstract:

The indirect effects of anthropogenic aerosols—through their interactions with clouds—are currently one of the most uncertain perturbations to the radiative energy balance at the top of the atmosphere. A crucial link between aerosol and cloud is that aerosols can act as cloud condensation nuclei (CCN). This microphysical process must be parameterised if the large-scale effects are to be represented in a general circulation model (GCM). Theoretical work presented in this thesis highlights t...
