EUFAR Airborne Science Webinar #4

4th EUFAR Airborne Science Webinar

Wednesday 7th September, 1500 CEST (1300 UTC)

Using satellite and in-situ observations of mixed-phase clouds to constrain their climate impact

Trude Storelvmo (University of Oslo)



In recent years, it has become increasingly clear that climate feedbacks involving mixed-phase clouds can have a strong influence on global warming. While satellite observations can provide a large-scale picture of these clouds and help identify cloud phase biases in state-of-the-art climate model, they are less useful when it comes to understanding the underlying cloud microphysical processes. This is where in-situ observations are invaluable, and can contribute to deeper process understanding across all relevant cloud regimes, and thereby improved representation of mixed-phase cloud processes in numerical models. This presentation will provide examples of how observational data sets and modeling tools across a wide range of scales can be combined to shed light on how mixed-phase clouds shape our present and future climate.
