Abstract: Abstract. The emission rate of light-absorbing aerosols, which contribute to climate forcing, has previously been calculated using mass emission factors combined with fuel-use inventories. Several assumptions made in this calculation lead to overestimates that are significant, but as yet unevaluated. We propose a new measurement approach that augments, and may be preferable to, the mass-based method for modeling radiative forcing by aerosols: direct measurement of the source strength of absorption. This quant…
