Welcome to the Clouds and Radiation Group

Our research focuses on the dynamic, thermodynamic, and radiative processes within cloudy boundary layers, with an ultimate goal of improving their understanding and representation in atmospheric models. To this end, we use data collected by several instruments together with radiative transfer computations and conceptual models.
In addition to the process-level research aimed at boundary layer clouds, the group also focuses on i) Improving and developing algorithms for retrieving geophysical properties, ii) Understanding factors affecting the boundary layer winds within a complex terrain and offshore to improve forecasting of wind energy, and iii) Understanding the relationship between aerosol radiative properties and their chemical composition.
