Marine Aerosol-Cloud-Climate Interaction

Description

Over the past two decades, in situ measurements, satellite remote sensing, and modeling efforts have shown important biogeochemical interactions and feedbacks between the ocean and atmosphere. However, these studies have also revealed the inherent complexity of ocean-derived aerosol-cloud interaction with multiple forcings and feedbacks, influencing the direct and indirect radiative effects of aerosols and the abundance of long-lived greenhouse gases. Fluxes of aerosols from the ocean ecosystem to the overlying atmosphere (e.g., sea spray generation of sea salt and primary marine organic aerosols and secondary aerosols resulting from ocean-emitted trace gases) are of fundamental importance to understand the Earth radiation budget and coastal air quality.

We invite contributions of original research articles and review articles that will stimulate the continuing effort to improve quantification of the radiative and climatic effects of marine aerosols. It is our goal for this special issue to become an international forum that brings together both atmospheric and oceanic scientists interested in an improved quantification of marine aerosols and their role in future projections of climate. Results from laboratory studies, in situ measurements, remote sensing observations, and modeling studies are welcome. Special emphasis will be given to results obtained within the last five years. The topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:

  • In situ measurements and remote sensing of DMS and other reactive trace gas emissions from the ocean
  • Marine ecosystem fluxes and spatial distribution of reactive trace gases in marine boundary layer
  • Effect of plankton speciation on types and scale of marine aerosol and reactive trace gas emission
  • Coastal and open ocean nucleation events
  • Spatial and temporal distribution of aerosol fluxes from the ocean
  • Chemical composition of marine primary and secondary organic aerosol
  • CCN and IN activation properties of marine submicron aerosol
  • Effect of marine aerosols on incoming radiation
  • Marine aerosols emissions and their effects on shallow and deep convective clouds (models and observations)
  • Modeling ocean biologically generated reactive gases associated with aerosol formation and fluxes to the atmosphere
