NOAA Chemical Sciences Laboratory 325 Broadway R/CSL9 Boulder, CO 80305 USA
The Clouds, Aerosol, & Climate research program studies clouds, their interaction with aerosol particles, their radiative properties, and their ability to produce precipitation.
We model the physical and radiative properties of cloud systems, using detailed large eddy simulation of aerosol-cloud interactions, mesoscale, and regional modeling. Model results are compared to in-situ and remote sensing data.
We participate in national and international field experiments, cloud modeling workshops, and international reviews and assessments to further our understanding of aerosol-cloud radiative effects and cloud feedbacks.
