Research Activities

The research activities of the Simulation Laboratory cover these areas:

  • climate modelling
  • numerical weather prediction
  • modelling of atmospheric radiative transfer
  • analyses of remote sensing observations
  • high-performance computing

Team members are working on these specific topics:

  • coupling of Lagrangian transport models with climate codes
  • assesment of photochemical lifetimes of long-lived trace species
  • modelling of clouds and precipitation at ultra-high spatial resolution
  • characterization of stratospheric gravity waves based on satellite observations
  • detection of volcanic emissions based on infrared remote sensing measurements
  • studies of microphysical properties of polar stratospheric clouds
  • validation of satellite remote sensing measurements
