Speaker: Annika Ekman, Professor of Meteorology, Department of Meteorology, Stockholm University
Title: A large-eddy simulation perspective on the formation, duration, and dissipation of mixed-phase Arctic clouds
Bio: Annica works as a professor at the Department of Meteorology, Stockholm University. I'm also an editor for the scientific journal Tellus B. My main research interests are clouds and aerosol particles (suspensions of nano- to micrometer sized particles in air) and the various ways aerosol particles can influence weather, circulation and climate. The impact of aerosol particles and clouds on the radiative balance of the Earth constitutes a major uncertainty in our understanding of present-day climate.
