Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics ACP Award 2023

ACP Award 2023 goes to Marina Friedel, ETH Zurich

At the occasion of the Swiss Geoscience meeting in Mendrisio in November 2023, the ACP Award for Atmospheric Research was presented to Marina Friedel for her PhD thesis "The role of Arctic ozone in forcing Northern Hemispheric climate". Her work shows that the springtime Arctic ozone depletion causes surface anomalies across the Northern Hemisphere on both seasonal and multi-decadal timescales. Her results were recognised in the summary report of the 2022 WMO/UNEP Ozone Assessment.
