Atmospheric aerosols play an important role in the global climate system through modifications of the global and regional radiation budgets. In particular the uncertainties associated with aerosol-cloud interactions and the resulting radiative effects remains persistently large – why?

In this talk, I will highlight the difficulties to assess aerosol-cloud interactions from space-born remote sensing and discuss the state of the art of the representation of aerosol-cloud interactions in global chemistry aerosol climate models, such as HadGEM-UKCA, from the (slightly) better constrained stratiform clouds to new frontiers: the investigation of aerosol effects on convective clouds.
