University of Bremen, Germany
The Arctic warms faster than the rest of the world. This effect is only poorly understood, i.e. models do not reproduce this strong warming of the Arctic atmosphere. This effect is called the Arctic Amplification. The project AC3 aims at filling the gaps in understanding the special dynamics of the Arctic, in particular to find the missing ingredients causing this enhanced warming.

Environmental Remote Sensing Laboratory (LTE), Lausanne, Switzerland
Riming is an effcient process to convert cloud water into precipitation water, and frequently occurs in mountainous regions. This PhD project aims to better understand how riming occurs at the local and regional scales in snowfall in mountainous terrain, using in particular measurements from an X-band Doppler dual-polarization radar.
