Direct Radiative Forcing due to Anthropogenic Aerosols in East Asia During 21-25 April 2001
Atmospheric aerosols play a major role in the global climate system. Many researchers have conducted studies on the radiative forcing of aerosols for recent years. Aerosol particles are known to cool or warm the atmosphere directly by absorption, scattering and emission of solar and terrestrial radiation and indirectly by changing the albedo and the life time of clouds by acting as cloud condensation nuclei (Charlson et al., 1992).
