Abstract: A six member ensemble of 20th
century simulations with changes to only
time-evolving global distributions of black carbon aerosols in a global coupled climate
model is analyzed to study the effects of black carbon (BC) aerosols on the Indian
monsoon. The BC aerosols act to increase lower tropospheric heating over south Asia
and reduce the amount of solar radiation reaching the surface during the dry season as
noted in previous studies. The increased meridional tropospheric temperature gradient in
