Constraining how much the Earth's climate will warm in response to greenhouse gas emissions is one of the primary goals of climate science. Our understanding of clouds and their interactions with their environment represent a central uncertainty in constraining climate sensitivity. I will present research seeking empirical constraints on two features of clouds that substantially impact our ability to constrain climate sensitivity: shortwave cloud feedback and aerosol-cloud interactions (aci). I will focus on the midlatitude regime because it has been shown in recent research to contribute strongly to uncertainty in both effective radiative forcing due to aci (ERFaci), and global-mean cloud feedback in global climate models (GCMs).
