Short summary
A satellite-based method for clear-sky aerosol direct radiative forcing (ADRF) retrieval and spatiotemporal characteristics of ADRF in eastern China were displayed during 2000–2016. Our analysis shows aerosols have a strong cooling effect at the surface, and the changes of ADRF are closely related to the changes of AOD with the development of economic growth and rapid urbanization in eastern China.
