An Investigation of the Aerosol Indirect Effect on Convective Intensity Using Satellite Observations
Description: The effect of the environment on individual clouds makes it difficult to isolate the signal of the aerosol indirect effect, particularly at larger spatial and temporal scales. This study uses observations from the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM), CloudSat, and Aqua satellites to identify convective cloud systems in clean and dirty environments.
