Marine stratocumulus and overlying clouds west of Baja California, here seen in Worldview using MODIS channels 3-6-7.
To the NW, and west of California, in this MODIS image, it looks like compensating subsidence from the NW-SE precipitating feature is quite dramatic. Impact on region albedo? I don’t think these systems can be perturbed by anthropogenic aerosol once they get going. The timescale for aerosol recycling is very short in such systems I would guess, but that still remains to be determined.
