Eberhard Parlow holds the chair of meteorology at the Department of Environmental Sciences at Basel University. His work ranges from estimating radiation in sub-polar environments using high resolution satellite data to urban micrometeorology. Professor Parlow has served as president of the European Association of Remote Sensing Laboratories, on the Earth Science Advisory Committee of the European Space Agency ESA, and as president of the Commission of Remote Sensing of the Swiss Academy of Sciences, where he continues to participate in several expert committees.
Zavisa I. Janjic
Zavisa I. Janjic is a leading scientist with the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. In 2007, Dr. Janjic was awarded the Francis W. Reichelderfer Award from the American Meteorological Society for his outstanding contributions to developments and implementation of the NOAA Environmental Modeling Center's regional weather prediction models (Eta and NMM). The numerical and parameterization schemes he developed ideally combine theoretical and technical solutions, as well as balance between elegance and practicality.
Hans-F. Graf is Professor for Environmental Systems Analysis at Cambridge University, UK. His research combines atmospheric modeling and data analysis, examining all time and space scales of climate variation, from cloud microphysics to global circulation. Recently he has concentrated on physico-chemical aspects of climate change, particularly aerosols, stratospheric ozone, and fundamental modes of general circulation. This includes the modeling and parameterization of convective clouds for use in non-cloud resolving models, which allows for consideration of chemistry-aerosol-microphysics processes.
