Stratospheric Forcing and climate

Research interests

Current interests:

  • Sulfate aerosols in the stratosphere
  • Evolution and transport of sulfur in the stratosphere (aerosol microphysical processes)
  • Understanding the micropysical processes after artificial and volcanic injections of sulfur into the stratosphere
  • Impact of radiative heating of aerosols on stratospheric dynamics (QBO, meso-cyclone)
  • Impact of volcanic eruptions and geoengineering on the climate
  • DFG Forschergruppe VolImpact
  • Model intercomparison GeoMIP, Member of GeoMIP steering committee
  • Numerical models: ECHAM5-HAM, MPI-ESM, ICON-ART

  • Simulation of atmospheric chemistry
  • EU Project IMPLICC
  • DFG special priority program
