Aerosol and Cloud Experiments in Eastern North Atlantic

Aerosol and Cloud Experiments in Eastern North Atlantic

With their extensive coverage of Earth, low clouds greatly impact global climate. Currently, the extent and brightness of marine low clouds are poorly represented in global climate models and the response of low clouds to changes in atmospheric greenhouse gases and aerosols remains a major source of uncertainty in projections of future climate.
