{{#if:Lecture 8 starts with a discussion of what we would ask Warren Washington if Warren Washington were to visit our class on Tuesday, February 5. Then the lecture revisits the idea of feedbacks and discusses the positive and negative backs present in the atmosphere. The discussion moves to aerosols, particulate matter in the atmosphere, which is the final bit of radiative forcing to be considered. Then models are introduced: what they are and how they are used.|== Lecture Summary == Lecture 8 starts with a discussion of what we would ask Warren Washington if Warren Washington were to visit our class on Tuesday, February 5.
