Scientists working in the S2 project


"I work on comparisons between ICON-LES and JOYCE (Jülich) observations (focused on cloud radar). I developed an refinement of drizzle identification with respect to CLOUDNET using higher moments of cloud radar Doppler spectra." C. Acquistapace, University of Cologne


"I assess fast adjustment of clouds to increasing atmospheric CO2 concentrations from both ICON_GCM and ICON_LEM simulations. More specifically, I investigate the thermodynamic and dynamics changes due to an abrupt 4x CO2 increase." C. Nam, University of Leipzig


"My research focuses on radiation-cloud interactions. We want to find out how (3D) radiative transfer affects cloud formation." C. Klinger, LMU


"My part in phase two is the implementation and testing of a 3D radiative transfer solver into ICON. My aim is to study the interaction of radiation and convective organization." F. Jakub, LMU


"In HD(CP)² I coordinate the evaluation activities of the different S-projects. Additionally, I work on the evaluation of the precipitation-evaporation parametrization from supersite observations." A. Foth, University of Leipzig


"I am a post-doc at the University of Cologne in Prof. Neggers's work group which focuses on developing and evaluating cloud and boundary layer parametrizations. My task is tostudy how subgrid-scale moisture variability can be represented in ICON using probability density functions." P. Griewank, University of Cologne


"My focus is on investigating the impact of changes in long-wave radiative transfer from above on boundary layer clouds using LES. Observations will be used to develop case studies of boundary layer clouds under elevated moisture layers." S. Reilly, University of Cologne


"My focus is to assess the ICON-LEM capability to simulate different cloud types and to represent the resulting cloud radiative effects. Towards this direction, I am combining ground- and satellite-based observations together with radiative transfer models." V. Barlakas, TROPOS


"My research focus within the HD(CP)² is to investigate the interaction between the nocturnal boundary-layer clouds and turbulence. By using advanced stochastic models and observations from the supersites, our aim is to develop a turbulence closure for stable boundary layers." M. Shapkalijevski, Department of Mathematics and Computer Sciences, FU-Berlin.


"Within the S2 project my task is to coordinate the evaluation of low-level clouds in the HD(CP)²model using remote sensing observations. Specifically, I'm curious to find out which physical process are specifically relevant for improving low-level cloud representation in the HD(CP)² model." U. Löhnert, University of Cologne
