PDRMIP prescribed anthropogenic burden and aerosol mass mixing ratio (MMR) fields, constructed from AeroCom Phase II models (Myhre et al. 2013b). The two left hand panels show the geographical distribution of the annual mean burden for BC (top) and SO4 (bottom) and (right hand panel) the vertical profile of MMR, of the present day increase in aerosol levels due to anthropogenic emissions. Thick lines show the annual means, thin lines show individual months for the vertical profiles. Note that BC MMR has been scaled by 10x for clarity.
