Data supporting the article "Significant climate impacts of aerosol changes driven by growth in energy use and advances in emissions control technology"

Dataset

Abstract

This dataset contains six files numbered in order. All data are preprocessed from the fully-coupled Community Earth System Model 1 (CESM1) simulations, produced and can be read using the Python cPickle package.

File01: The global distributions of1970-2010 changes in sulphate, black carbon and organic carbon aerosol burdens,
File02; The effective radiative forcing (ERF) of 1970-2010 changes in sulphate, black carbon and organic carbon aerosols
File03: The global distribution of 1970-2010 changes in total aerosol optical depth (AOD), and those attributed to the emission drivers including growth in energy use and advances in emission control technology
File04: The same as File03, but for ERF
File05: The same as File03, but for annual mean surface air temperature
File06: The same as File03, but for annual mean precipitation
Note that these data files are to support the article submitted to the Journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, and may be edited under peer-review processes. Any inquiries go to alcide.zhao@ed.ac.uk
