Welcome to the Meteorology 2015 question marathon.
Remember your hide tabs!
I'll kick off...
In the vertical dimension, the upper level jet stream is located closest to which mandatory synoptic scale pressure level?

How can an increase in atmospheric particulates affect temperatures?

Particulates can block sunlight from entering the earth, causing an unusual drop in temperature (there's probably an opposite effect, but I don't know it :P).

Correct. Also, particulate matter can serve as cloud condensation nuclei, and the increased incidence of clouds will result in smaller diurnal temperature ranges.
Edit: oh, and I forgot, they can also absorb insolation causing an increase in temperature.

What is the difference between an internal forcing mechanism different from an external forcing mechanism? (hint: check the wiki, I put it on there)
