The geography and climatology of aerosols

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper describes the nature of aerosols, their influence on the climate system and methods for quantifying atmospheric turbidity, which is the total column amount of aerosol. The main focus is a review of turbidity research that serves to document how and why aerosols vary over time and space. It reveals that temporal and spatial variability in aerosol emissions is superimposed by temporal and/or spatial variability in meteorological and climatic factors. This interaction between aerosol emission characteristics and atmospheric processes is manifested in distinct trends in total column aerosol (geographic region) at a variety of spatial and temporal scales
