Abstract:

The long term goal is to understand all the aerosol source, sink, and transformation processes, both physical and chemical, which are important in determining the dynamical evolution of the aerosol size distribution. The results of this understanding are formulated in terms of a process-oriented aerosol model which will eventually be combined with meteorological models to predict the aerosol size distribution in 3-D regional models. The predictive model can be used, not only for research purposes, but as a foundation for a model to predict the effects of aerosols on DOD EO systems.
