Aerosols pose a central uncertainty in the understanding of climate change, both in the 20th and 21st Century contexts. There continue to be gaps in the knowledge on aerosols from the radiative forcing viewpoint, while vast areas of
inadequacy in our efforts to reduce the uncertainties in aerosol-cloud interactions, especially regionally, affect our knowledge on climate response to radiative, particularly anthropogenic, forcings. We will focus on how the recent
knowledge has expanded, reducing gaps in some areas of the field, but introducing new ones and raising challenging science questions concerning the eclectic mix represented by the different kinds of aerosols. Recent considerations
take the issue beyond the effects of the aerosols on solely temperature changes to other important climate variables from the global to regional scales.
