Prof. Trude Storelvmo
Mixed phase clouds and climate: from small scale understanding to large scale impacts
KIT, CN, IMK, Geb. 435, Raum 2.05



Wettervorhersagen unserer Partner:

Welcome to the Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research - Department Troposphere Research (IMK-TRO). In the field of tropospheric research, fundamental research on climate, water cycle and trace gas budgets are carried out. These atmospheric processes such as turbulence, convection, cloud formation, aerosol physics, precipitation formation and exchange processes on the Earth's surface by measurements and theoretical methods are examined in detail. The results are used in models of the atmosphere to represent and predict processes in the climate system or weather phenomena.


Job Opening

There is an opening for a full professorship (W3) in Meteorology at the Institute for Meteorology and Climate Research (IMK-TRO). We are looking for a leading scientist with an outstanding track record in the broad area of fundamental research in meteorology/atmospheric sciences.

Practical tailored climate parameters for climate adapation

Climate change affects many fields of action. The integration of adaptation experience into the analysis of regional climate simulations provides a basis for the implementation of adaptation measures.

KIT and University of Leeds Sign Agreement

Partnership agreement strengthens research projects and exchange opportunities for students and staff.

Cloud water and ice: what satellites miss

The cloud ice fraction measured by satellites is systematically biased, because satellites can hardly see into clouds.

How does precip change below the radar beam?

There is a gap between the lowest radar measurement and ground. How does precipitation change in this gap?
