As the aerosol content and solar heating change with time, the atmosphere and the Earth's surface experience different warming and cooling. This animation displays a time series of the INDOEX region with 8-day averages showing aerosol and solar reflectance (albedo) data from the Terra satellite. From these, we see 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. Note: Movie showing how aerosol content and albedo can change temperature forcing. Data Collected: 2001/01/01-2001/03/21. Animator: Tom Bridgman (GST). Scientist: Veerabhadran Ramanathan (Scripps Institution of Oceanography), Anand K. Inamdar (Scripps Institution of Oceanography). Platforms/Sensors/Data Sets: Terra/CERES, Terra/MODIS.
