Trude Storelvmo is an atmospheric scientist, focusing on the role of aerosol particles and clouds in the Earth’s energy budget. She studies how aerosol particles affect climate by acting as cloud condensation nuclei and ice nuclei. In particular, she has studied processes related to cloud-climate feedback mechanisms and climate engineering involving aerosols and/or clouds. She has published two peer-reviewed studies since 2014 investigating cirrus thinning for geoengineering applications.
