Title: Using ARM Measurements to Improve the Simulated Vertical Distribution of Arctic Aerosols in the Community Atmosphere Model: Final Technical Report

Abstract

The main accomplishments achieved under this project were: (1) assessing the utility of high spectral resolution lidar (HSRL) measurements from Barrow to determine vertical profiles of aerosols in the Arctic, (2) identifying ways to improve simulations of the vertical profile of black carbon in the Community Atmosphere Model (CAM) via alteration of various microphysical parameters, and (3) assessing the sensitivity of meltwater runoff from the Greenland Ice Sheet to varying amounts, timing, and hygroscopicity of deposited black carbon aerosols. The most notable product resulting from this work, pertaining to accomplishment (3), is the following peer-reviewed publication: Li, Y. and Flanner, M. G. (2018), Investigating the impact of aerosol deposition on snowmelt over the Greenland Ice Sheet using a large-ensemble kernel, Atmos. Chem. Phys., 18, 16005-16018, doi:10.5194/acp-18-16005-2018.
