Observational constraints for cloud water response to aerosols

Dr. Minghuai Wang

Nanjing University


It has been a challenge to estimate aerosol indirect effects associated with cloud water response to aerosols. In this talk, several different metrics, including precipitation susceptibility, are compared for their ability to constrain cloud water response to aerosols in global climate models. Multi-sensor aerosol and cloud products from A-Train satellites are further used to quantify uncertainties in observational estimates of precipitation susceptibility. In the end of this talk, we use a regional climate model WRF-Chem to briefly discuss the scale-dependence of the estimate of the precipitation susceptibility.
