The project addresses the question to which extent the tropics warm and how the circulation systems respond to this warming. Our goal is to better understand the processes that govern how the tropics responds to radiative forcing with a focus on the dynamical response, cloud processes, and the associated precipitation patterns. Within this framework the topics of the projects could range from turbulence to radiation, dynamics, and microphysics and will be specified in accordance with the candidates.
