As a result of increasing attention paid to aerosols in climate studies, numerous global satellite aerosol products have been generated. Aerosol parameters and underlining physical processes are now incorporated in many general circulation models (GCMs) in order to account for their direct and indirect effects on the earth’s climate, through their interactions with the energy and water cycles. There exists, however, an outstanding problem that these satellite products have substantial… CONTINUE READING
