Contributors Preface

Chapter 1 Tropospheric Aerosols Chapter 2 Aerosol-Cloud Interactions Chapter 3 Aerosol-Climate interactions Chapter 4 Microphysical Structures of Stratiform and Cirrus Clouds Chapter 5 Radiative Properties of Clouds Chapter 6 Radiative Effects of Clouds on Earth's Climate Chapter 7 Parameterization of Clouds in Large-Scale Numerical Models Chapter 8 Stratospheric Aerosols and Clouds



Aerosol and clouds play important roles in determining the earth's climate, in ways that we are only beginning to comprehend. In conjunction with molecular scattering from gases, aerosol and clouds determine in part what fraction of solar radiation reaches the earth's surface, and what fraction of the longwave radiation from the earth escapes to space. This book provides an overview of the latest research on atmospheric aerosol and clouds and their effects on global climate. Subjects reviewed include the direct and indirect effects of aerosol on climate, the radiative properties of clouds and their effects on the Earth's radiation balance, the incorporation of cloud effects in numerical weather prediction models, and stratospheric aerosol and clouds.


Researchers and graduate students in atmospheric sciences, meteorology, and geophysics.
