The final Kumpula Physics colloquium of 2018 will take place on Friday. Our speaker is physicist and atmospheric scientist Professor Ilona Riipinen from Stockholm University. Her work focuses on understanding the atmospheric processes governing air quality and global climate. In her talk, titled How clouds clean the air and influence the climate – and why should you care?, she will discuss the future of the Earth’s climate, the role of aerosols and clouds in it, and how it links to the choices we make in our everyday lives.

The talk will last about 30 minutes, after which there will be a cocktail reception. Welcome!
