Using measurements for evaluation of black carbon modeling

  title={Using measurements for evaluation of black carbon modeling},
  author={Simone Gilardoni and Elisabetta Vignati and John P. Wilson},
The ever increasing use of air quality and climate model assessments to underpin economic, public health, and environmental policy decisions makes effective model evaluation critical. This paper discusses the properties of black carbon and light attenuation and absorption observations that are the key to a reliable evaluation of black carbon model and compares parametric and nonparametric statistical tools for the quantification of the agreement between models and observations.
