Abstract: The shortwave radiative forcing (1F) and the radiative forcing efficiency (1Feff) of natural and anthropogenic aerosols have been analyzed using estimates of radiation both at the Top (TOA) and at the Bottom Of Atmosphere (BOA) modeled based on AERONET aerosol retrievals. Six main types of atmospheric aerosols have been compared (desert mineral dust, biomass burning, urbanindustrial, continental background, oceanic and free troposphere) in similar observational conditions (i.e., for solar zenith angles between 55 and 65 ) in order to compare the nearly same solar geometry.
