Environmental & Climate Sciences Department Seminar

"Global models for atmospheric new particle formation from the CERN CLOUD experiment"

Presented by Hamish Gordon, Leeds

Thursday, November 15, 2018, 11:00 am — Conference Room Bldg 815E

In this seminar I will introduce the CERN CLOUD chamber experiment studying atmospheric new particle formation. I will then focus on work we have done to parameterize new particle formation and growth rates for atmospheric models. I will discuss the implementation of the parameterizations into the models, and the implications of the results from these models for estimated cloud condensation nuclei concentrations and indirect aerosol radiative forcing. The uncertainties in modelling new particle formation remain large, and I will outline how we are moving forward to try to reduce them.
