Larissa Nazarenko

Senior Staff Associate II

Dr. Nazarenko joined CCSR in 1997 and specializes in climate system simulations. She examines climate response under the forcings of changing well-mixed greenhouse gases, ozone, stratospheric aerosols, solar irradiance, soot effect on snow and ice albedo, land use changes, and tropospheric aerosols with their parameterized. Also she examines the simulated, indirect effect on clouds based on empirical evidence of aerosols on cloud droplet number concentration; global climate feedbacks under the different combinations of climate forcings; prediction of future climate for the conventional increase CO2 in the atmosphere and for alternative Representative Concentration Pathways scenarios.
