The effect of subtropical aerosol loading on equatorial precipitation

Abstract:

Cloud‐aerosol interactions are considered as one of the largest sources of uncertainties in the study of climate change. Here another possible cloud‐aerosol effect on climate is proposed. A series of large eddy simulations (LES) with bin microphysics reveal a sensitivity of the total atmospheric water vapor amount to aerosol concentration. Under polluted conditions the rain is suppressed and the total amount of water vapor in the atmosphere increases with time compared to clean precipitating ...
