  • In this thesis, the impact of natural and anthropogenic aerosol particles on cloud properties and precipitation is studied and quantified for Western Europe taking the formation and emission of aerosol particles into account.
    The online-coupled model framework COSMO-ART is extended to simulate the formation of cloud droplets and ice crystals on the basis of the physical and chemical properties of the aerosol particles, as well as the subsequent impact on cloud microphysical processes.
