Estimation of aerosol direct radiative forcing by Asian dust using sun/sky radiometer and lidar measurement Jae-Gwang Won and Soon-Chang Yoon

Abstract

This paper determines the aerosol forcing due to Asian dust using actual measurements of aerosol optical properties. We suggest a method of determining aerosol parameters for the radiative transfer model from the AErosol RObotic NETwork (AERONET) data set. Since the AERONET measurements are made at only four wavelengths, we use a linear regression method… (More)
