FY 2011 4th Quarter Metric: Estimate of Future Aerosol Direct and Indirect Effects

One of 112 texts in the series: Fiscal Year 2011 available on this site.

Description

The global and annual mean aerosol direct and indirect effects, relative to 1850 conditions, estimated from CESM simulations are 0.02 W m-2 and -0.39 W m-2, respectively, for emissions in year 2100 under the IPCC RCP8.5 scenario. The indirect effect is much smaller than that for 2000 emissions because of much smaller SO2 emissions in 2100; the direct effects are small due to compensation between warming by black carbon and cooling by sulfate.
