Abstract: [1] This study investigates the influence of absorbing aerosols on marine boundary layer clouds using large-eddy simulations. The study focuses on two different shallow cumulus cloud regimes: an intermediate trade wind cumulus regime with moderate cloud fraction (0.1-0.5) and a pure trade wind cumulus regime with low cloud fraction (0.05-0.2). An absorbing aerosol mixture was used that reflected the polluted conditions observed during the Indian Ocean Experiment. The aerosol layer had a midvisible optical dep…
