Our research group focuses on the ways in which atmospheric aerosol particles can affect the Earth’s climate system. Aerosols can directly impact climate by absorbing or scattering solar and terrestrial radiation. Particles can also indirectly affect climate by acting as the seeds on which cloud droplets and ice crystals form. Elucidating how particle properties, especially chemical composition, impact the climate system is the goal of our group.
Please have a look around the website. Information is available for prospective students and post doctoral fellows and you can view our papers and presentations. Feel free to leave a comment or contact us if you have any questions.
With researchers at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology our recent paper on the formation of ice clouds under Martian conditions has been published in the Journal of Geophysical Research – Planets. A link to the paper can be found here and a research highlight in Nature Geosciences here.
