Climate & Radiation Laboratory Seminar Series
Constraining how much the Earth’s climate will warm in response to greenhouse gas emissions is one of the primary goals of climate science. Our understanding of clouds and their interactions with their environment represent a central uncertainty in constraining climate sensitivity.
Radiative forcing is the radiative perturbation caused by a change in atmospheric composition from which all other climate changes stem. Although a fundamental metric in climate science, it has not always been clearly defined.
Cloud cover and precipitation have great significance in modulating Earth’s radiation budget and the global hydrological cycle.
