Project Scientist
Stratospheric and tropospheric chemistry and dynamics, geoengineering


Dr. Simone Tilmes is a Project Scientist in NCAR's Earth System Laboratory. She is currently the Chemistry-Climate Liaison in support of the Community Earth System Model (CESM) and chair of the Early Careers Scientist Assembly (ECSA) at NCAR. Her scientific interests cover the evaluation of chemical and dynamical processes in chemistry climate models using remote and in-situ observations. She has investigated past, present and future evolution of the ozone hole in both hemispheres based on models and observations, and the impact of Geoengineering on the Earth's system. In recent years she extended her research towards UTLS troposphere, with focus on tropospheric chemistry, long-range transport of pollutants, as well as the evolution of tropospheric ozone.
