Relationship between pollution and rainfall: how much water falls in the mountains and in the lowland can depend on the atmospheric aerosols.

About Anna Napoli
I am interested in potential changes of the orographic rainfall mechanisms and in how orographic precipitation responds to global warming and to anthropogenic forcing: I study the effects of the microphysical parameters on the orographic precipitation in the idealized case and with high-resolution historical scenarios and climate change projections over the Great Alpine Region using the Weather Research and Forcasting (WRF) Model. I am currently a PhD student at CIMA Research Foundation (Savona, Italy) in collaboration with the University of Milano-Bicocca (Milano, Italy).
