What is Atmospheric Modelling about?

The research group of Prof. Dr. Yaping Shao focuses on the modeling and parameterization of the dynamic processes, which are responsible for the interactions between the various components of the climate system. The use of integrated modeling systems enables the embedding of expert knowledge of various other sciences. The main model improvements of the research group focus on

  • the dust cycle and the impact of dust on the energy and carbon dioxide balances of the Earth system,
  • exchange processes between atmosphere and land- as well as ocean surface, and
  • the hydrological reactions to climate change.
