Postdoctoral Fellow in Evaluating Aerosol Hygroscopicity and Optical Properties in Climate Models using in-situ Measurements

Project description
Atmospheric aerosols are an important component of the Earth’s climate system. Aerosols scatter and absorb solar radiation but are also eminent important for cloud formation since they act as nuclei for cloud droplets (or ice particles). Their optical properties and thus contribution to the Earth’s radiative budget are strongly dependent on their ability to take up water (i.e. hygroscopicity) and ambient relative humidity. This project will use global in-situ measurements of aerosol hygroscopicity that will be evaluated in global climate models. The position will be part of the project “Evaluation and improvement of the parameterization of aerosol hygroscopicity in global climate models using in-situ surface measurements” which is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy (DoE).
