Dynamics of Climate Variability and Climate Change
5 December 2006
Aerosols: liquid or solid particles suspended in air
sources: volcanoes, sea spray from ocean, dust
coarse in size (~2 microns)
sources: combustion of fossil fuels and biomass
fine in size (~ 0.2microns)
Aerosols have a short lifespan in the atmosphere
