  • An atmospheric global climate model coupled to a mixed layer ocean model is used to study changes in tropical rainfall due to the indirect effects of anthropogenic sulfate aerosol. The model is run to equilibrium for present-day (PD) and preindustrial (PI) sulfur emission scenarios. As in two other recent studies, the model generally gives a southward shift of tropical rainfall in the PD run relative to the PI run. This is largely due to a hemispheric asymmetry in the reduction of sea surface… CONTINUE READING
