Black carbon mixing state resolved global aerosol simulations


BCの混合状態を表現可能な新しいエアロゾル・モデルを開発し、CAM5に実装した。観測に基づく降水からのBC除去過程を適用することで、冬季および春季のBC濃度が観測データとよく整合するようになった。 A new aerosol model that can express the mixed state of BC was developed and implemented in CAM5. By applying the BC removal process from precipitation based on observations, winter and spring BC concentrations are in good agreement with the observed data.

Abstract (Brief description of the experiment contents (initial conditions, boundary conditions, etc.))
1) We used the stand-alone version of CAM5 (FC5 compset) in the Community Earth System Model (CESM) version 1.2.0 with present day climatological data (1982–2001) for sea surface temperature and sea ice. 2) We used anthropogenic, biomass burning, and biogenic emissions for the year 2000 [Lamarque et al., 2010] and online emissions of dust [Zender et al., 2003; Albani et al., 2014; Kok, 2011] and sea salt [Martensson et al., 2003; Monahan et al., 1986]. 3) The simulations were conducted with 12 size and 8 black carbon mixing state bins.
