Atmospheric and oceanic dynamical responses to changes in aerosol

Massimo A. Bollasina, Laura J. Wilcox

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter describes how the spatially heterogeneous distribution of radiative cooling and heating of the atmosphere and the Earth's surface by aerosol drives changes in atmospheric and oceanic circulation. These induced changes in circulation occur from the hemispheric scale to scales of a few thousand kilometers in regional monsoons. It also explains how anthropogenic aerosol has caused substantial regional shifts in precipitation and changes in the strength of the overturning circulation in the ocean over the industrial period.
