[1] The hypothesis that areas of high oceanic productivity affect the physical properties of shallow marine clouds via the production of secondary organic aerosols is evaluated using satellite data. The correlation between chlorophyll a concentrations, an indication of oceanic productivity, and low cloud droplet liquid phase effective radius (Re) is examined for several ocean regions and time periods. While a strong correlation between chlorophyll a and low Re can occur for specific periods in… CONTINUE READING
