Yangyang Xu, Ranjit Bahadur, Chun Zhao and L. Ruby Leung Estimating the radiative forcing of carbonaceous aerosols over California based on satellite and ground observations Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres 118

Version of Record online: 4 OCT 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/jgrd.50835

Key Points

  • The solar absorption was partitioned into contributions from EC, OC and dust.
  • Observed and modeled EC AAOD agrees but models underestimate OC AAOD by 50%.
  • TOA warming of carbonaceous aerosols is 0.7 W/m2 and that of OC is near zero.
