Clouds, aerosols, turbulence and climate

Research area 2

We investigate the role of clouds, turbulence and aerosols in the climate system and develop approaches for representing them in large-scale models. We use experimental data from detailed laboratory experiments, extensive field campaigns and long-term observations, in combination with models ranging from molecular-scale to fully coupled Earth system models.

Many atmospheric processes of large importance for the global climate occur on size and time scales that are so small that they are not directly resolved in global Earth System Models. Examples of such phenomena are processes related to atmospheric aerosols,clouds and turbulent flows. This research area brings together scientists working on a detailed understanding of these processes, on developing approaches for representing them in large-scale models and on investigating their role in the climate system. The tools used in this research area span from detailed laboratory experiments to long-term field observations, extensive field campaigns, and from molecular-scale models to fully coupled Earth System Models.
