Participate to model intercomparisons and -evaluations regarding aerosol indirect effects; and to re-use the data from past experiments in future assessments. Achievement: Contributed to the first indirect effect intercomparison (Penner et al., 2006), and led the second phase indirect effect intercomparison study (Quaas et al., 2009).
