Aerosols affect the atmospheric radiation budget through scattering and absorption of solar radiation and through their role as cloud/ice nuclei.
Frierson and his co-authors first used detailed measurements from NASA's Clouds and Earth's Radiant Energy System, or CERES, satellites to show that sunlight actually provides more heat to the Southern Hemisphere - and so, by atmospheric radiation alone, the Southern Hemisphere should be the soggier one.
Topics include measurement of aircraft state and thermodynamic and dynamic variables; in situ measurements of gas, aerosol particles, and cloud and precipitation particles; aerosol and cloud particle sampling; atmospheric radiation measurements; hyperspectral remote sensing; and LIDAR and RADAR observations.
The data used for the study was collected by different DOE Atmospheric Radiation Measurement facilities.
