The influence on climate forcing of mineral aerosols from disturbed soils


AEROSOLS influence the global radiation budget1, and so changes in the atmospheric aerosol load due to either natural causes or human activity will contribute to climate change2. A large fraction of the mass of tropospheric aerosol is wind-blown mineral dust, and its contribution to radiative forcing can be locally significant3,22. Model calculations… (More)
