Dynamic Surface Properties of Atmospheric Aerosol and Resulting Climate Impacts

Theme: Basic processes

Start date: Cohort 1: 2019

Supervisors: Dr Bryan Bzdek (Bristol) and Dr Matthew Watson (Bristol)

The surface tension of atmospheric aerosols impacts their ability to serve as cloud droplet seeds and affect climate. This project will develop approaches to measure droplet surface tensions and better resolve dynamics at the particle surface, working closely with modellers.
