Aerosol-Cloud-Radiation Interactions: Modeling and Observations

Cloud and aerosol properties are being studied with a focus on climate forcing and feedbacks. A central theme is that of aerosol-cloud interactions. To address this problem we use data from remote sensors and airborne field campaigns, in conjunction with numerical models. Cloud parcel models and large eddy simulations are being used to address both the effect of aerosol particles on cloud microphysics, as well as cloud processing of aerosol. The models are used in conjunction with observations to elucidate physical processes and to develop retrieval techniques. Research opportunities exist in the field of (1) numerical modeling of aerosol, clouds, radiation, land-use, and associated feedbacks; (2) in-situ and remote observation and analysis of aerosol, cloud, and the aerosol-cloud continuum; (3) critical research into Marine Cloud Brightening.
