  1. 1. Inverse Modeling of Cloud – Aerosol Interactions

    Author : Daniel Partridge; Johan Ström; Kari Lehtinen; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; stratocumulus; marine; cloud; aerosol; interactions; MCMC; inverse modeling; droplet closure; global sensitivity; Atmosphere and hydrosphere sciences; Atmosfärs- och hydrosfärsvetenskap; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : The role of aerosols and clouds is one of the largest sources of uncertainty in understanding climate change. The primary scientific goal of this thesis is to improve the understanding of cloud-aerosol interactions by applying inverse modeling using Markov Chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) simulation. READ MORE
