February 27 – RA Seminar Series | RA2

Welcome to the second seminar in the new Bolin Centre Seminar Series!
The series aims to provide an opportunity to learn about current research topics in the individual research areas of the Bolin Centre and to bring researchers together on a regular basis. We strive to trigger lively discussions and to facilitate both internal and external collaborations.

The host this time is Research Area 2: Clouds, aerosols, turbulence and climate

Sea spray aerosols and cloud droplet formation

Speaker: Prof. Merete Bilde, Department of Chemistry, Aarhus University
Time: February 27 at 13h00–14h00
Place: Ahlmannsalen, Geoscience Building

Sea spray aerosol is formed by oceanic wave breaking and constitutes a major source of aerosols to the atmosphere. Once emitted sea spray aerosol contributes to the formation of cloud droplets. The role of organic molecules and surfactants in this process is however unclear. This talk addresses the formation and properties of sea spray aerosol and the ability to act as cloud condensation nuclei. Results from laboratory experiments using artificial as well as real sea water will be presented and discussed.

The lectures will be streamed and saved on the Bolin Centre website.

Welcome!
