Resumen:
The effect of changes in atmospheric aerosol properties on clouds formation, distribution and radiative properties is the most uncertain component of the Earth´s-Atmosphere energy balance. Thus, there is an essential need for understanding aerosol-cloud interaction (ACI) processes and reducing their associated uncertainties in radiative forcing (RF). Ground-based remote sensors (e.g. lidar and radar) are crucial in this sense, providing profiles of aerosol and cloud properties, required to study ACI processes and their influence on RF. During this seminar, the project CONDENSATION is presented. This project will be developed at the GFAT during the next two years with the overall objective of improving our understanding of aerosol-cloud interaction processes and accurately quantify their impact on atmospheric radiative forcing, thereby reducing the associated uncertainty.
