Modeling Dust in East Asia by CESM and Sources of Biases

Wu, M., X. Liu, K. Yang, T. Luo, Z. Wang, C. Wu, K. Zhang, H. Yu, and A. Darmenov (2019), Modeling Dust in East Asia by CESM and Sources of Biases, J. Geophys. Res., 124, 8043-8064, doi:10.1029/2002JD002775).

East Asian dust has a significant impact on regional and global climate. In this study, we evaluate the spatial distributions and temporal variations of dust extinction profiles and dust optical depth (DOD) over East Asia simulated from the Community Earth System Model (CESM) with satellite retrievals from Luo, Wang, Ferrare, et al. (2015, https://doi.org/10.1029/2002JD002775), Luo, Wang, Zhang, et al. (2015, https://doi.org/10.1002/2014GL062111) (L15), Yu et al. (2015, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.
