Aerosol formation processes need more detailed descriptions in climate models

Aerosol formation processes need more detailed descriptions in climate models

A recent dissertation work, written at Finnish Meteorological Institute explored the modeling of aerosols within global climate models. Since aerosols cause the highest uncertainty in radiative forcing, their accurate description in climate models is very important.
