The impact of atmospheric aerosols on global climate: a review

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper examines the alternative impact of atmospheric aerosols on global climate in terms of the so-called dust veil effect (viz. increased turbidity), which is associated with global cooling. The paper discusses the causes and evidence of the volcanic signal and emphasizes its moderation by El Nino events. It concludes with a brief analysis of the contributions made by particulate matter released into the lower troposphere from human activities
