Kahn, R.A., H. Yu, S.E. Schwartz, M. Chin, G. Feingold, L. Remer, D. Rind, R. Halthore, and P. DeCola, 2009: Introduction. In Aerosol Properties and Their Impacts on Climate, U.S. Climate Change Science Program Synthesis and Assessment Product 2.3. M. Chin, R.A. Kahn, and S.E. Schwartz, Eds., National Aeronautics and Space Administration, pp. 9-23.

This report highlights key aspects of current knowledge about the global distribution of aerosols and their properties, as they relate to climate change. Leading measurement techniques and modeling approaches are briefly summarized, providing context for an assessment of the next steps needed to significantly reduce uncertainties in this component of the climate change picture. The present assessment builds upon the recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fourth Assessment Report (IPCC AR4) and other sources.
