Short summary
The aerosol absorbing coefficient (AAC) assesses the direct radiative forcing of absorbing aerosols. The corrected AAC and absorption Ångström exponent (AAE) in Nanjing, YRD, are characterized using AE-31. Schmid-corrected AAC at 532nm and the AAE at 660/470nm are about 43.23±28.13 Mm-1 and 1.56, both with strong seasonal and diurnal variations. A high AAC is mostly resultant of local and subregional emissions in Nanjing. It peaks at RH values of 40, 65, and 80% at different AAE levels.
