To develop a true picture of aerosol-cloud interaction, a number of scientific disciplines require attention. In particular, seven broad- based study topics feed into the 7-SEAS program:
1) Clouds and Precipitation
2) Radiative transfer
4) Anthropogenic and biomass burning emissions and transport
5) Natural background atmospheric chemistry
6) Tropical-subtropical meteorology
7)Regional nowcasting, forecasting, and inter-annual outlooks
See the 7-SEAS White Paper under "Reports" for further information.
