How will clouds behave in a warming world and how will this change feed back to the warming process? This question has occupied scientists for many years. It is especially hard to answer for the smallest clouds, shallow cumulus, as they need high resolutions to be properly represented in climate models. In my PhD project I try to leverage the capabilities of ICON-LES to look at the behaviour of these clouds under global warming conditions in sub-kilometer resolution. I work with Bjorn Stevens and Ann Kristin Naumann in the group Drivers of Tropical Convection (DTC).
