Project description

Machine learning to increase knowledge on aerosol-cloud impacts

The Paris Climate Agreement represents a huge step towards addressing the climate change problem. However, a wide range of difficulties emerge in its implementation. A major obstacle is the lack of scientific evidence on non-greenhouse gas forcing impacted by aerosol-cloud interactions. Even though big data science has been used to further understand aerosol-cloud climate interactions, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are not yet fully applied in climate science, and scientists are not trained adequately. The EU-funded iMIRACLI project proposes the merging of AI, machine learning and climate science to investigate existing data and increase our knowledge on aerosol-cloud impacts. The project will train early stage researchers to produce a new generation of climate data experts.
