    Keywords : CALIPSO; CALIOP; EMEP; organic aerosols; vertical distribution;

    Abstract : Aerosols have been identifed as a contributor to the Earth's radiative budget. Aerosol emissions from human activities play a role at least as important as for the greenhouse gases. Their role is even more important that their global effect is opposite to the one of greenhouse effects: aerosols tend to cool down the atmosphere. READ MORE
