THE ROLE OF CLOUDS AND AEROSOL IN CLIMATE
 

Summary: THE ROLE OF CLOUDS AND
AEROSOL IN CLIMATE
Day 3 ­The Direct and Indirect Effect of Aerosol
Aerosol
Remote sensing introduction
Joachim Joseph (Tel Aviv University)
WMO / IAMAP Meeting, 1983
There is still, in many circles, a general lack of
appreciation of the potential importance of aerosols
as an agent for climatic change or for acquisition of
the necessary data to study the latter. In particular,the necessary data to study the latter. In particular,
there is no appreciation of possible direct effects of
aerosols on the energy balance or on clouds, on
cloud formation and on remote sensing.This final
problem can only be ameliorated by showing
aerosol effects to be significant and relevant either
in nature or in models.
Why do we care about aerosol?
Air pollution / health effects
Direct radiative effects
