Atmospheric Black Carbon Alters Weather Patterns (Still Images)

Simulations of effects of black carbon aerosols on temperature, precipitation, and radiation flux. This version presents stills from two different simulations (for comparison). For experiment A, black carbon is added based on INDOEX measurements while experiment B is run with no black carbon aerosols.
