Abstract Aerosol black carbon (BC) is considered the second largest contributor to global warming after CO 2 , and is known to increase the atmosphere's temperature, decrease the albedo in snow/ice, and influence the properties and distribution of clouds. BC is thought to have a long mean residence time in soils, and its apparent stability may represent a significant stable sink for atmospheric CO 2 . Despite recent efforts to quantify BC in the environment, the quantification of BC deposition… CONTINUE READING
