Work Context

The work will be supervised by Jean-Louis Dufresne (LMD) and Cyril Crevoisier (LMD) as part of the ANR MCG-Rad project. The main objective of this project is to development a Monte-Carlo model to estimate the radiative forcing of various greenhouse gases on a global scale, to perform these simulations and to the analysis their results. The work will take place at Sorbonne Université in Paris and will be done in collaboration with researchers from the LAPLACE laboratory in Toulouse and the IRIT laboratory in Toulouse.
