UK Surface Ocean - Lower Atmosphere Study (UK SOLAS)
Global model of aerosol processes (GLOMAP) — effects of aerosol in the marine atmospheric boundary layer
Principal Investigator — Ken Carslaw, School of Earth and Environment, University of Leeds.
- To assess the level of understanding of aerosols in the marine atmospheric boundary layer
- To develop an advanced global model of aerosol microphysical and chemical processes
The project centred on the use of modelling to study aerosol processes in the marine atmospheric boundary layer. Source observations have included
- Distributions of condensation nuclei
- Size resolved aerosol composition
GLOMAP runs have supported other UK SOLAS projects by refining the planning of field campaigns and by assisting data analysis.
