Global Burden History
Global Tropospheric Aerosol Burdens
The table below lists the mean annual global tropospheric burden of several aerosol species in [Tg]. All values are obtained from 1-year benchmark simulations at 4° x 5° resolution.
|Version||Met||Year||BCPI [Tg]||SO4 [Tg]||DST1 [Tg]||SALA [Tg]||SALC [Tg]|
|v9-02r||GEOS-FP||Aug 2012 - Jul 2013||0.07163||1.22752||2.89732||0.31730||3.53138|
- The simulations that utilized GEOS-5 met fields were done for year 2005, with a 4-year spinup. (Computed by Hongyu Liu)
- For v9-02r, tropopause values for June and July 2012 were used as estimates for June and July 2013.
- The simulations for GEOS-Chem v10-01 and later versions utilized GEOS-FP met fields for the year 2013, with a 4-year spinup. (Completed by the GEOS-Chem Support Team)
