Selected Projects

  1. Bullet2005-2007 ( Contribution to the EC(Nest Insight)-Project, ANTISTORM, “Anthropogenic Aerosols Triggering and Invigorating Severe Storms”; Outcome: “ANTISTORM provided one of the first insights into the science of 'man- made' weather in Europe. In fact, some weather phenomena may not be as natural as commonly thought. Recent studies suggested that man-made particulate pollution can substantially increase the severity of certain storms or even trigger their inception.”
