Emission-induced nonlinearities in the global aerosol system: Results from the ECHAM5-HAM aerosol-climate model

Abstract:

In a series of simulations with the global ECHAM5-HAM aerosol-climate model, the response to changes in anthropogenic emissions is analyzed. Traditionally, additivity is assumed in the assessment of the aerosol climate impact, as the underlying bulk aerosol models are largely constrained to linearity. The microphysical aerosol module HAM establishes degrees of freedom for nonlinear responses of the aerosol system. In this study's results, aerosol column mass burdens respond nonlinearly to cha...
