About the Environmental Science Colloquium Series (ECo-Series)

The ECo-Series provides a forum for discussing scientific issues of societal relevance, sharing new and innovative techniques, and for interacting with other scientists, stakeholders and policy makers. Our aim is to provide entertaining, educational, and provocative events which foster discussion and creativity both within and outside of the Department.

Formation of new aerosol particles in the atmosphere and its impact on climate

Aerosol particles in the atmosphere are important because of their impact on climate. One of these effects relates to the fact that cloud droplets form on aerosol particles (so-called cloud condensation nuclei, CCN), and that an enhanced number concentration of CCN results in an increased reflection of the formed clouds, exerting a cooling on our planet. About 50% of the …

Ice Nucleation in Arctic Cloud

Low altitude clouds are intricately linked to the Arctic’s climate and uncertainty in their interaction with aerosol means there is substantial uncertainty in projections of Arctic climate. These clouds are below 0 Degree Celsius and are therefore susceptible to the formation of ice which can dramatically alter their radiative properties, yet our knowledge of the ice nucleating particle population in …
