Vortrag von Gholamhossein BAGHERI

(Max Plank Institute for Dynamics and Self-organization)


„From fortunate drop to unfortunate drop“

All around us there are numerous examples of particles in fluids. In our home or office, where we spend 90% of our time, to the atmospheric boundary layer, the true home of us all. Particles come in a variety of shapes, compositions and sizes that greatly affect our lives by influencing the quality of the air we breathe or the weather and climate. There are highly irregular volcanic particles, non-spherical microplastics, spherical cloud droplets, structured ice crystals and pathogenic particles released upon exhalation, to name just a few examples. In this talk I will take you on a journey through studying such particles in the lab or in the field and the instruments we make to study them. I will talk about the unsolved mystery of the fortunate drop that can initiate rain in warm clouds, to the thousands of kilometres long journey of microplastics from the heart of Europe to the Arctic, and the unfortunate drop that can lead to the transmission of airborne diseases.
