Short summary
Global distributions of aerosol radiative effects are calculated using aerosol properties of the MACv2 climatology and a satellite-retrieval-based relationship for the first indirect effect. Present-day climate cooling by anthropogenic aerosol is likely within a −0.7 to −1.6 W m−2 range – with a best estimate at −1.0 W m−2. Only about 1/3 of this TOA cooling is contributed by direct effects, which are more variable (even in sign) and stronger near pollution source regions than indirect effects.
