ZHANG, XIN. Examining Aerosol Indirect Effects using a Regional Climate-Aerosol Model with Improved Aerosol Activation and Cloud Parameterizations. (Under the direction of Dr. Yang Zhang). A new 3-D model testbed for air quality and climate related research over East Asia has been established through conducting simulations using the Weather Research and Forecasting model couple with online chemistry. January, April, July, and October 2005 that represent four seasons have been selected for the…

TLDR
This study demonstrates consistency between a global aerosol model and adjustment to an observation-based method, producing a global and annual mean radiative forcing that is weaker than –0.5 W m−2, with a best estimate of -0.3 W m −2.
Implementation of dust emission and chemistry into the Community Multiscale Air Quality modeling system and initial application to an Asian dust storm episode
Abstract. The US Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) modeling system version 4.7 is further developed to enhance its capability in simulating the
Toward a Minimal Representation of Aerosols in Climate Models: Description and Evaluation in the Community Atmosphere Model CAM5
Abstract. A modal aerosol module (MAM) has been developed for the Community Atmosphere Model version 5 (CAM5), the atmospheric component of the Community Earth System Model version 1 (CESM1). MAM is
Canadian Aerosol Module (CAM): A size-segregated simulation of atmospheric aerosol processes for climate and air quality models 2. Global sea-salt aerosol and its budgets
[1] Size-segregated sea-salt aerosols were included as dynamic constituents in the third generation of the Canadian general circulation model (GCMIII) using the Canadian Aerosol Module (CAM). A
Toward a Minimal Representation of Aerosols in Climate Models: Comparative Decomposition of Aerosol Direct, Semidirect, and Indirect Radiative Forcing
AbstractThe authors have decomposed the anthropogenic aerosol radiative forcing into direct contributions from each aerosol species to the planetary energy balance through absorption and scattering
Modeling the interactions between aerosols and liquid water clouds with a self-consistent cloud scheme in a general circulation model
To model aerosol–cloud interactions in general circulation models (GCMs), a prognostic cloud scheme of cloud liquid water and amount is expanded to include droplet number concentration (Nd) in a way
Global indirect aerosol effects: a review
Abstract. Aerosols affect the climate system by changing cloud characteristics in many ways. They act as cloud condensation and ice nuclei, they may inhibit freezing and they could have an influence
Microphysics parameterization for convective clouds in a global climate model: Description and single‐column model tests
[1] An efficient two-moment microphysics parameterization scheme for convective clouds is developed to improve the representation of convective clouds and its interactions with stratiform clouds and
Models-3 community multiscale air quality (cmaq) model aerosol component
[1] An initial evaluation of the Models-3 Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) model aerosol component reveals CMAQ's varying ability to simulate observed visibility indices and aerosol species
The semi‐direct aerosol effect: Impact of absorbing aerosols on marine stratocumulus
Aerosols that absorb solar radiation may lead to a decrease of low‐cloud cover and liquid‐water path (LWP), leading to a positive radiative forcing. A large‐eddy model was used to investigate this
