Abstract

Radiative forcing caused by cirrus clouds and aerosols were computed using the data obtained with lidar installed at the Fukue Island observatory. The MTSAT data were used to discriminate the existence of cirrus clouds. Small fluctuation of cirrus cloud radiative forcing was estimated, and the effects caused by aerosols were also computed around Fukue Island from the end of 2005 to 2010.
