Third cluster examines the consequences of geo-engineering – Mark Lawrence appointed scientific director

„The Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS), Potsdam, named atmospheric scientist PD Dr. Mark Lawrence (42) scientific director. […] Mark Lawrence will lead the IASS research cluster Sustainable Interactions with the Atmosphere (SIWA), which focuses on developing a sustainability-driven approach to managing human influence on the earth’s atmospheric composition with negligible or controllable short and long term impact on the climate, our health and ecosystems. His research at IASS will examine the relationship between air pollution and climate change in the age of urbanization, as well as the opportunities and risks presented by climate engineering, targeted intervention in the atmosphere’s chemical and physical processes as a means of reducing climate change.“
