Working Group "Aerosols, Trace Gases and Climate Processes", Leader Dr. Bernhard Vogel
Aerosols play an important role in the climate system. They modify the radiation and interact with clouds and gaseous trace gases.
On the regional scale we focus on the interactions of aerosol particles and different cloud- and weather systems.
To quantify relevant physical and chemical processes and their interaction with regional climate we develop complex numerical simulation models from regional scales (COSMO-ART) up to global scales (ICON-ART).
