Annotation A National Research Council report summarizing current understanding of the effects of aerosols on climate change and recommending a research program to identify and prioritize the research required to determine the effects of aerosol forcing on the atmosphere. The report covers climate forcing by aerosols, the elements of a research program, sensitivity and uncertainty analysis, and the proposed Icarus Program. Lacks an index.
