Changes in Atmospheric Aerosol Loads

Figure 2.6

This figure appears in chapter 2 of the Our Changing Planet: The U.S. Global Change Research Program for Fiscal Year 2015 report.

Modeled (top panel) and observed (bottom two panels) changes in atmospheric aerosol loads between 1980 and 2000. A decrease over Europe and North America (blue) and an increase over southeastern and eastern Asia (red)—evident in all three panels—contributed to localized warming and cooling, respectively, during this period.
