Study looks at the limitations of passive remote sensing to constrain global cloud condensation nuclei

Posted on 20th June 2016

Stier, P. (2016) Limitations of passive remote sensing to constrain global cloud condensation nuclei, Atmos. Chem. Phys., 16, 6595-6607, doi:10.5194/acp-16-6595-2016 Abstract Aerosol–cloud interactions are considered a key uncertainty in our understanding of climate change (Boucher et al., 2013). Knowledge of the global abundance of cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) is fundamental to determine the strength of […]
