Black carbon radiative heating effects on cloud microphysics and implications for the aerosol indirect effect: 2. Cloud microphysics


This work examines the effect of black carbon (BC) radiative heating on cloud droplet formation. Changes in cloud droplet concentration and cloud albedo due to the presence of black carbon are computed for different cases of aerosol size distributions, meteorological conditions, BC mixing state, and aerosol composition. We examine the effect of three new… (More)
