Key questions:

  • What processes, interactions, and feedbacks control the lifecycle of biomass-burning aerosols from source to receptor regions in boreal spring Southeast Asia?
  • How do droplet nucleation and the resulting products (e.g., cloud albedo, water content, precipitation efficiency, etc.) of warm rain processes in the cloud-resolving model simulations respond with respect to key aerosol physicochemical observables (e.g., number/mass concentration, size/shape distribution, and chemical composition) over a regional scale?
  • How do changes to aerosol-cloud interactions in boreal spring Southeast Asia provide feedbacks to regional climate through exchanges of energy, water, gases, and particulate matter between the surface and troposphere?
