Abstract

[1] Dumka et al. [2006] (hereinafter referred as D06) made extensive measurements of radiative fluxes at the surface during December 2004 at Manora Peak, in the Shivalik ranges of the Central Himalayas during a comprehensive aerosol field campaign as a part of the Indian Space Research Organisation's Geosphere Biosphere Programme (ISRO-GBP). The surface radiative fluxes were used to estimate aerosol radiative forcing. Based on the data analysis D06 concluded that the anthropogenic aerosols (from valley below) transported upwards by atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) dynamics during daytime provide an atmosphere conducive for "mixed aerosols" and suggested that focused efforts are needed to address this issue.
