The authors used a sun-tracking multiple wavelength radiometer to study characteristics of atmospheric aerosols from Pune University campus. The study shows that there is a strong influence of weather parameters like relative humidity and surface wind and atmospheric boundary layer processes such as capped inversion and upper air circulation on the temporal variation of the aerosol spectral optical depth. These are described in the paper.

    The composition of air near ground level is not necessarily representative of the troposphere as a whole. In particular in the Antarctic, stratification from the strong inversions often present and scavenging by blowing snow in the lowest part of the boundary layer may lead to air masses aloft...

    The UMIST instrumented light aircraft (Cessna 182) was used during summer 1999 and winter 2000 to make measurements of aerosol and trace gases in the Boundary Layer (BL) and Free Troposphere (FT) both upwind and downwind of the city of Birmingham in the UK. These measurements were made as part...

    The response of a case of thin, warm marine-boundary-layer (MBL) clouds to preindustrial (PI) and present-day (PD) conditions is simulated by a cloud-system resolving model (CSRM). Here, both the aerosol conditions and environmental conditions match those of a general circulation model (GCM)....

    This study examines the role of solar radiation in the effect of aerosols on liquid-water path (LWP) in thin, marine stratocumulus clouds with LWP of ∼50 gm-2 or less by performing four sets of simulations with different solar radiation. Each set is composed of a simulation with present-day...
