#3 Feedback Mechanisms
Lecturer: Johannes Quaas
Date: Monday, September 07, 2020 10:00 – 11:00 a.m., online

The lecture will introduce the energetic perspective on climate change, and with this the forcing – feedback concept. For each of the energetic feedbacks – temperature, lapse rate, water vapour, surface albedo, and clouds – the fundamental ideas are presented. This is followed by a discussion of results of a model-based feedback analysis and will highlight the specific role of feedbacks in the Arctic. The lecture will conclude by outlining key open questions.
