Role of Aerosols in Climate Change: Hydrological Cycle

PI: Jean-Francois Lamar
Institution: University Corporation for Atmospheric Research
Abstract:
I intend to investigate how changes in the aerosols affect the hydrological cycle. Since the aerosols reduce the available energy at the surface, increasing aerosols will tend to decrease the strength of the hydrological cycle, at least at the global cycle. I will look at how different models treat aerosols (which are considered) to look at the influence of sulfate vs soot. I am also planning on looking at other climate variables such as surface temperature and other forcings such as tropospheric ozone.
