C8: Consistent Computation of the Chemistry-Cloud Continuum and Climate Change in Cyprus

The C8 project (2009-2015) aimed at improving the understanding of aerosol and cloud processes and their representation in regional and global climate models. We have developed new methods that consistently compute atmospheric trace gas and aerosol chemistry, and can be applied to compute aerosol and cloud interactions in detail. This allows for a direct coupling in climate models between aerosol chemical composition, being influenced by air pollution, and the continuum between hazes and clouds. The project focused on the Eastern Mediterranean region because it is a hot spot in climate change exposed to drying and growing air pollution. The C8 project was part of the Energy, Environment and Water Research Centre, in cooperation with the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry in Germany, and has improved the understanding and assessment of human impacts on air quality and climate. It received support from the European Research Council (Advanced Research Grant).
