    Research Interests: Climate change alters the radiation, temperature, sea surface pressure, and precipitation distributions, and also forces terrestrial vegetation and ecological systems to adapt. Great attention has being paid to potential aerosol impacts on cloud microphysical and radiative properties, as the indirect effect of aerosols currently produces the greatest uncertainty in climate predictions among all known climate forcing mechanisms. Large climate feedback uncertainties limit the accuracy in predicting the response of Earth´s climate to the atmospheric CO2 increase.
