Short summary
This is the first study looking at the amount of aerosols above cloud to see whether the amount is greater or less than in nearby clear skies at the same heights. We find that the aerosol amount over cloud differs a lot from that in nearby clear skies over some areas. These results give an indication, for the first time, that clouds might affect the amount of overlying aerosols.
