Environmental Modelling in the Climate System
A central focus of my research is to
which degree clouds affect the chemical
composition of the atmosphere, but also
how atmospheric chemistry alters clouds
and their properties, including
atmospheric aerosol particles.
Atmospheric convection and its parameterisation in large scale models
This research topic deals with the parameterised representations of subgrid scale clouds (mostly convective clouds) in large-scale models and their associated processes. A focus is on convective transport in and around those clouds.
Earth System Modelling
interactions and feedbacks of atmospheric
chemistry and the climate of the Earth
system can only be described and analysed
with the help of comprehensive Earth
For that purpose I develop and apply the global chemistry climate model .
