A2 - Clouds and Tropical Circulation
The project aims to better understand the tropical heat budget, its link to circulation systems, and how these respond to warming.
The understanding of the system’s sensitivity will be crucial in reducing the epistemic uncertainty in this globally important region – a prerequisite for more tightly constraining global climate sensitivity and hence the range of possible and plausible climate futures. The project will augment and leverage experimental activities in the tropical Atlantic, a new generation of satellites and advances in modeling.
