Short summary
A global atmosphere model with explicit representation of aerosol processes is used to assess uncertainties in the climate impact of ocean DMS efflux and the role of spatial and temporal variability of the DMS flux in the effect on climate. The radiative effect of sulfate is nearly linearly related to global total DMS flux. Removing the spatial or temporal variability of DMS flux changes the global radiation budget, but the effect is of second-order importance relative to the global mean flux.
