What is it about?
It is about the different impacts of black carbon and sulfate aerosols on precipitation (globally and especially tropically) from the angle of energy balance.

Why is it important?
We focused on the differing impacts of black carbon and sulfate aerosols on precipitation from the angle of their different ways in disturbing global and inter hemispherical energy balance. We found that the separation between rapid adjustment and slow climate response determines the hydrological sensitivities, as well as the ways how to influence the ITCZ position meridionally, for different climate forcing agents.
