#20 Topic: The challenge of modelling Arctic aerosol-climate impact
Lecturer: Bernd Heinold
Date: Monday, July 4, 2022 10:00 – 11:00 a.m.

Aerosols from different natural and anthropogenic sources impact the Arctic climate by affecting the radiation budget, precipitation and atmospheric dynamics at high and mid-latitudes. Current climate models, however, persistently show a spread in estimates of the aerosol-radiation and aerosol-cloud effective forcing that is particularly large in the Arctic region.

In this lecture we will illuminate some of the key uncertainties that make aerosol modelling in the Arctic so challenging.
