Effects of Aerosol and SST Gradients on Marine Stratocumulus Albedo
MetadataShow full item record
Airborne data are reported on the effect of sea surface temperature and aerosol gradients on the albedo of marine stratocumulus clouds off the coast of central California. Both types of gradients, at the magnitudes and spatial scales observed, produce significant and comparable trends in the cloud albedo ( 15% changes over 40 km).
