How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Filippo Calì Quaglia worked at the Institute of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate ISAC, Italian National Research Council and participated in the 14th italian/french expedition at Concordia Station, Antartctica for 1 year. He is currently enrolled at University Ca' Foscari, Venice as PhD student in Polar Sciences.
The Arctic radiative budget is strongly influenced by cloud variability and properties, and many processes of cloud formation-evolution-dissipation still require a more extensive and deeper understanding. The spectral signature of clouds, i.e., the radiances, can be measured and used to discriminate the microphysics of clouds (optical thickness, pa...
Boreal fires have increased during the last years and are projected to become more intense and frequent as a consequence of climate change. Wildfires produce a wide range of effects on the Arctic climate and ecosystem, and understanding these effects is crucial for predicting the future evolution of the Arctic region. This study focuses on the impa...
This study considers a set of state-of-the-art seasonal forecasting systems (ECMWF, MF, UKMO, CMCC, DWD and the corresponding multi-model ensemble) and quantifies their added value (if any) in predicting seasonal and monthly temperature and precipitation anomalies over the Mediterranean region compared to a simple forecasting method based on the ER...

Seasonal forecasts are increasingly employed as sources of information on the expected evolution of climate in the few months ahead by various end-users. This study provides an overall assessment of the skills of the main seasonal forecast systems available in the Copernicus Climate Data Store (C3S) in representing temperature and precipitation ano...
Extended and intense wildfires occurred in Northern Canada and, unexpectedly, on theGreenlandic West coast during summer 2017. The thick smoke plume emitted into theatmosphere was transported to the high Arctic, producing one of the largest impacts everobserved in the region. Evidence of Canadian and Greenlandic wildfires was recorded at the ThuleH...
Surface ablation of the Greenland ice sheet is amplified by surface darkening caused by light-absorbing impurities such as mineral dust, black carbon, and pigmented microbial cells. We present the first quantitative assessment of the microbial contribution to the ice sheet surface darkening, based on field measurements of surface reflectance and co...
Understanding climate variability and change demands for the assessment of extremes in climate such as cold spells, heat waves, intense precipitation among others. This thesis analyses the output of the EC-Earth Global Climate Model (GCM) run at different spatial resolutions, from about � 125 km to �16 km, over the European domain to assess the imp...
Clouds in the Arctic are an elusive and fast-changing component of the atmosphere and an active field of research that represents a big challenge for the scientific community. The Arctic radiative budget is strongly influenced by cloud variability and properties, and many processes of cloud formation-evolution-dissipation still need further and deeper understanding. Cloud existence relies upon processes spanning from the microphysics of the droplets accreting around particulates (nucleation) to the advection and transport of air masses at the synoptic scale, influenced by seasonal and latitudinal variations. Cloud radiative forcing (CRF) remains one of the largest uncertainties in modelling the atmosphere of our changing world. As stated by (Bennartz et al., 2013), “the relative balance of decreased solar radiation and increased downward longwave radiation depends on cloud optical properties, which are most strongly modulated by variations in LWP”. This doctoral project intends to deepen the knowledge of the atmospheric effects of clouds affecting the Arctic energy budget.
The MEDSCOPE project aims at advancing such initiatives by improving climate forecast capabilities and related services on seasonal-to-decadal timescales. The strategy will be based on exploiting the range of existing datasets of climate observations and forecasts to improve our understanding of sources and mechanisms of predictability.
