NAWDEX - An airborne field campaign to improve jet stream forecasts over Europe

NAWDEX - An airborne field campaign to improve jet stream forecasts over Europe

It may seem bizarre that processes occurring within clouds near the USA, involving tiny ice crystals and water droplets, can have an influence on high impact weather events thousands of miles away in Europe, and our ability to predict them days in advance. However, this is the fundamental nature of the atmosphere as a chaotic dynamical system.

Aerosol and Cloud Experiments in Eastern North Atlantic

Aerosol and Cloud Experiments in Eastern North Atlantic

With their extensive coverage of Earth, low clouds greatly impact global climate. Currently, the extent and brightness of marine low clouds are poorly represented in global climate models and the response of low clouds to changes in atmospheric greenhouse gases and aerosols remains a major source of uncertainty in projections of future climate.
