AeroCom Phase 2 Direct Radiative Interaction Status as of Most numbers are final, a few submissions may change slightly. Effect on final numbers is thought to be minimal.

We're trying to find a better word… GISS-MATRIX NO3 RF under evaluation (currently removed) Total RF is the models own estimate of the total anthropogenic direct aerosol forcing Adjusted total RF is the model total RF plus the median of any components the model doesn't treat
