In the project, we will apply a range of maximum principles to various problems, from atmospheric heat transport (particularly the “Arctic amplification” of global warming) to the density  stratification of the ocean.

This project will aim for modelling the global and regional climate effects of major Icelandic eruptions with different SO2 emission strengths and explosivity focusing on radiation, clouds, hydrology, circulation and Earth System coupling processes at high latitudes. High Performance Computing platforms and cloud services are key for the training in computational climate science.
