Description:

Bright and dark aerosols, combined with solar heating, create different effects in heating the atmosphere and heating the surface of the Earth. This animation zooms into the INDOEX region showing aerosol and solar reflectance (albedo) data from the Terra satellite, then displays how these inputs generate warming of the atmosphere (Atmospheric Forcing - red regions) and cooling of the surface (Surface Forcing - dark regions). Areas of missing data (due to clouds, etc.) are either black or transparent.
