GASSP welcomes new data partners and modelling groups who are interested in performing similar uncertainty simulations for comparison.
The extent and sophistication of aerosol measurements is growing rapidly. If used effectively, new measurements can lead to the continued improvement of global models and our understanding of how aerosol concentrations are changing.
GASSP therefore encourages wider participation of aerosol measurement teams who were not involved in our original proposal. Our main focus is on in situ measurements that can help us to understand the processes that control concentrations of cloud condensation nuclei on a global scale. We are particularly interested in datasets from remote locations where existing data are sparse. We are also undertaking a cluster analysis of the global model to understand which aerosol “regimes” are under-represented. We will endeavour to include all relevant data in future publications.
