Working Group: Cloud-Aerosol-Precipitation Interaction

Through a one-time funding opportunity, scientists from Los Alamos, Lawrence Livermore, and Sandia National Laboratories will contribute to the overall CCRP mission to “advance the forefront of climate change research to provide the nation with the scientific knowledge it needs about the effects of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions on Earth’s climate and biosphere to support effective energy and environmental decision making.” This one-year program is designed to integrate climate modeling advances with carbon measurement innovations to advance the understanding of GHG emissions on climate. New methods in climate modeling and uncertainty quantification and integrated, mobile measurements technology will be described, and their integration will be illustrated. The integrated effort will allow Sandia, Los Alamos, and Lawrence Livermore researchers to contribute to ongoing BER programs without affecting continuing funding for those programs.
