The impacts of fine particles on the global climate can now be further assessed

A new version of the ECHAM-HAMMOZ climate model has been published to better assess the impact of fine particles in the atmosphere on the climate.

The model can be used to simulate fine atmospheric particles so that both their size and chemical composition can be taken into account. The model will be used in the international climate modeling project of the World Climate Research Program, CMIP.
