In Fall 2020 the board of NWO domain Science has awarded 15 applications in the Open Competition ENW-KLEIN. These grants are intended for innovative, fundamental research of high quality and/or scientific urgency. One of the awarded applications is CloudRoots, coordinated by WUR/UU. The project will make intensive use of new, advanced observation and simulation techniques developed within the Ruisdael Observatory to reduce two significant uncertainties in weather and climate models: clouds variability over land, and the uptake of carbon dioxide by the biosphere.
