Scientific Questions

To achieve these goals, the following principal questions have to be answered:

Question 1:
What are the perturbations in the radiation budget in regions strongly affected by anthropogenic sources of particles?
Question 2:
Do calculations based on in situ and remote measurements of the properties of these aerosols agree with the measured perturbations?
Question 3:
What aerosol properties (e.g., chemical composition, size distribution, etc.) primarily control the perturbations?
