The recent Indian Ocean Experiment (INDOEX) observed high aerosol concentrations with a sizeable soot fraction over the northern Indian Ocean. This aerosol mix substantially absorbs solar radiation, and recent modeling studies have proposed that the resulting atmospheric heating reduces daytime cloud cover. The present study tests this hypothesis by investigating whether low-level cloud cover has decreased over the northern Indian Ocean between 1952 and 1996, a time period when south Asian… CONTINUE READING
