To understand the trajectories of the changing climate, much of our current research focuses on atmospheric particulate matter, which is a key component of the Earths energy budget. Aerosol particles influence the climate directly in the atmosphere or indirectly via clouds. For our studies, we rely on observations in the field, numerical simulation, as well as process studies in the laboratory.

THE BIG PICTURE

ACES is part of the SECTION FOR EARTH AND ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCES at Stockholm University, which covers a wide range of research into the Earth’s formation, climate and the environment.
