Clouds, Aerosols and Radiation (General Session)/High Resolution Cloud Models
Convener: A. Macke  | Co-Conveners: A. I. Flossmann , P. Stier , X. Cui , S. Lolli 
Oral Programme
 / Thu, 26 Apr, 10:30–12:15  / 13:30–17:00  / Room 10
Poster Programme
 / Attendance Fri, 27 Apr, 08:30–10:00  / Hall X/Y

Clouds and aerosols play a key role in climate and weather related issues over a wide range of spatial and temporal scales. This session aims to link research activities in modelling and observations of cloud / aerosol radiative and dynamical/microphysical processes as well as aerosol-cloud interactions.

Specific topics of the session are:

- Cloud and aerosol macro- and microphysical properties

- The role of aerosols and clouds for the radiative energy budget

- Observational constraints on aerosol-cloud interactions

- Cloud resolving modelling

- Parameterization of cloud and aerosol microphysics/dynamics/radiation in GCMs

- Aerosol, cloud and radiation interactions and feedbacks in the climate system

- Use of observational simulators to constrain aerosols and clouds in models

Solicited speakers include:

Graham Feingold (NOAA)
