STORM Together with other partners of the Cluster of Excellence CliSAP, the MPI-M has been using the MPI-ESM to explore the effects of very high resolution on patterns of climate.  This project, called STORM, is combining an atmosphere model that has 95 levels and a triangular spectral truncation of T255, leading to a grid spacing at mid-latitudes near 25 km, with a tri-polar ocean grid whose average resolution is about 0.1 deg.  The purpose of the STORM simulations is to help understand the effects of qualitiatively new phenomena that emerge at different scales, such as ocean eddies, or the interactions between fluid flows and topography.  For further information please contact Opens window for sending emailDr. Jin-Song von Storch, or visit the storm project webpage More information about ICON is also available as part of the Focus on feature which appeared on our home page during December 2012.

Project Description

 

BACCHUS Biogenic versus Anthropogenic emissions on Clouds and Climate: towards Holistic UnderStanding The goal of BACCHUS is to quantify key processes and feedbacks controlling aerosol cloud interactions by combining advanced measurements of cloud and aerosol properties with state-of-the-art numerical modelling. The MPI-M contributes with remote sensing data of the MPI-M Barbados site for case-studies and participates in common simulations for process understanding at smaller modelling scales and climate impact assessments at global scale.
