Atmospheric effects of the Mt Pinatubo eruption
The eruption of Mt Pinatubo in June 1991 caused the largest perturbation this century to the participate content of the stratosphere. The radiative influence of the injected particles put an end toExpand
Radiative forcing from the 1991 Mount Pinatubo volcanic eruption
Volcanic sulfate aerosols in the stratosphere produce significant long-term solar and infrared radiative perturbations in the Earth's atmosphere and at the surface, which cause a response of theExpand
The Persistently Variable “Background” Stratospheric Aerosol Layer and Global Climate Change
An increase in the amount of aerosols in the stratosphere during the past decade has decreased the rate of global warming, and climate model projections neglecting these changes would continue to overestimate the radiative forcing and global warming in coming decades. Expand
The Impact of Geoengineering Aerosols on Stratospheric Temperature and Ozone
Anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions are warming the global climate at an unprecedented rate. Significant emission reductions will be required soon to avoid a rapid temperature rise. As a potentialExpand
CALIPSO polar stratospheric cloud observations: second-generation detection algorithm and composition discrimination
This paper focuses on polar stratospheric cloud (PSC) measurements by the CALIOP (Cloud-Aerosol LIdar with Orthogonal Polarization) lidar system onboard the CALIPSO (Cloud-Aerosol Lidar and InfraredExpand
A global climatology of stratospheric aerosol surface area density deduced from Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment II measurements: 1984–1994
A global climatology of stratospheric aerosol surface area density has been developed using the multiwavelength aerosol extinction measurements of the Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment (SAGE)Expand
SAGE version 7.0 algorithm: application to SAGE II
This paper details the SAGE (Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment) version 7.0 algorithm and how it is applied to SAGE II, which is now in better agreement with more modern data sets and more robust for use with trend studies. Expand
Major influence of tropical volcanic eruptions on the stratospheric aerosol layer during the last decade
The variability of stratospheric aerosol loading between 1985 and 2010 is explored with measurements from SAGE II, CALIPSO, GOMOS/ENVISAT, and OSIRIS/Odin space-based instruments. We find that,Expand
Assessment of SAGE version 6.1 ozone data quality
[1] The Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment (SAGE) II V6.1 ozone retrievals are shown to be of better precision at all levels and to be much more accurate than previous retrievals in the lowerExpand
Climate forcings in Goddard Institute for Space Studies SI2000 simulations
[1] We define the radiative forcings used in climate simulations with the SI2000 version of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) global climate model. These include temporal variations ofExpand
