Light Absorption by Carbonaceous Particles: An Investigative Review
The optical properties of the light-absorbing, carbonaceous substance often called “soot,” “black carbon,” or “carbon black" have been the subject of some debate. These properties are necessary toExpand
Bounding the role of black carbon in the climate system: A scientific assessment
[1] Black carbon aerosol plays a unique and important role in Earth's climate system. Black carbon is a type of carbonaceous material with a unique combination of physical properties. This assessmentExpand
A technology‐based global inventory of black and organic carbon emissions from combustion
[1] We present a global tabulation of black carbon (BC) and primary organic carbon (OC) particles emitted from combustion. We include emissions from fossil fuels, biofuels, open biomass burning, andExpand
Calibration and Intercomparison of Filter-Based Measurements of Visible Light Absorption by Aerosols
Data on light absorption by atmospheric particles are scarce relative to the need for global characterization. Most of the existing data come from methods that measure the change in lightExpand
Limitations in the enhancement of visible light absorption due to mixing state
[1] Absorption by light-absorbing carbon (LAC) particles increases when the carbon is mixed with other material, and this change affects climate forcing. We investigate this increase theoreticallyExpand
Historical (1850–2000) gridded anthropogenic and biomass burning emissions of reactive gases and aerosols: methodology and application
We present and discuss a new dataset of gridded emissions covering the historical period (1850–2000) in decadal increments at a horizontal resolution of 0.5° in latitude and longitude. The primaryExpand
An inventory of gaseous and primary aerosol emissions in Asia in the year 2000
[1] An inventory of air pollutant emissions in Asia in the year 2000 is developed to support atmospheric modeling and analysis of observations taken during the TRACE-P experiment funded by theExpand
Spectral absorption properties of atmospheric aerosols
We have determined the solar spectral absorption optical depth of atmospheric aerosols for specific case studies during several field programs (three cases have been reported previously; two are newExpand
Emissions of primary aerosol and precursor gases in the years 2000 and 1750 prescribed data-sets for AeroCom
Inventories for global aerosol and aerosol precursor emissions have been collected (based on published inventories and published simulations), assessed and prepared for the year 2000 (present-dayExpand
Light absorption by organic carbon from wood combustion
Abstract. Carbonaceous aerosols affect the radiative balance of the Earth by absorbing and scattering light. While black carbon (BC) is highly absorbing, some organic carbon (OC) also has significantExpand
