Ice nucleation in aerosols containing biomolecules

Lead Research Organisation: University of Bristol
Department Name: Physics


TBC- student is CDT student in year 1 of PhD. This record will be updated when project proposal is written (summer 2021)

Preliminary / outline description [will be updated summer 2021]:

Ice nucleation in environmental aerosols is an important atmospheric process, but many details are still poorly understood. This project addresses the physical chemistry of heterogeneous ice nucleation by bio-nanoparticles. You will develop apparatus to levitate and freeze water droplets, and gain relevant background through environmental modelling and interaction with the British Antarctic Survey.
