Aerosol-cloud radiative, microphysical and dynamical interactions are a key determinant of the weather and climate. As reported by the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), these processes represent a major source of uncertainty for climate models. Aerosol-cloud interactions represent a very active and fast moving research field. The school will consist of basic and advanced lectures on the current knowledge of aerosol-cloud interactions physics and the representation of these processes in atmospheric models. Examples of aerosol-cloud interaction research using cloud resolving and global models will be shown. The afternoons will be occupied with laboratory studies, demonstrating some data sources for research in the area and using a simple toy model to investigate and understand cloud-aerosol feedbacks.
