Researchers led by Prof. Zhang Weijun from the Hefei Institutes of Physical Science (HFIPS) of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) have found that a decrease of about 35% of single scattering albedo (SSA) at 365–405 nm would cause a 46% decrease in direct radiative forcing (DRF) efficiency at ground albedo. The research was published in Science of the Total Environment.
