I propose to develop an innovative interdisciplinary model framework to refine the estimate of aerosol indirect effect (i.e. influence of atmospheric aerosol particles on cloud properties), which remains the single largest uncertainty in the current drivers of climate change. A major reason for this uncertainty is that current climate models are unable to resolve the spatial scales for aerosol-clo ...
