Record #84585:

Protracted climatic effects of massive smoke injection into the atmosphere / Curt Covey.

Title: Protracted climatic effects of massive smoke injection into the atmosphere / Curt Covey.
Author(s): Covey, Curt.
Date: 1987.
In: Nature. (1987.), Vol. 325(6106) (1987)
Abstract: Describes general circulation model in which usual assumptions of fixed sea-surface temperature and sea ice are relaxed so that climatic impact of massive smoke loading (as in nuclear war) is assessed for four months of simulated time. Two competing long-term effects are apparent: positive feedback on surface cooling due to enhanced sea-ice formation, and surface warming at some latitudes due to heat transport from upper troposphere, where smoke aerosols absorb sunlight.
Notes:

Nature. Vol. 325(6106) :701-703 (1987).
