Distributions of aerosol optical thickness and cloud droplet effective radius from the NICAM-SPRINTARS simulations. Global geographical distributions of (a, c) aerosol optical thickness and (b, d) cloud droplet effective radius from (c, d) the NICAM-SPRINTARS simulations in comparison to those obtained from (a, b) the MODIS satellite observations for 1 to 8 July 2006 (cited from Suzuki et al. [2008]). The unit of cloud droplet effective radius is micrometers.
