Adjunct Professor

Professor of Atmospheric Sciences




Prof. Rosenfeld focused on the ways by which anthropogenic emissions of particulate air pollution  affect cloud composition and precipitation forming processes. His main research means are measurements from instrumented airplanes in clouds over many parts of the world, accompanied by remote sensing with radars and satellites. He participated in development of weather satellites and their applications in the USA and Europe. His research yielded a range of discoveries, including the ways by which air pollution can inhibit the formation of rain in clouds and thus decrease rainfall from shallow clouds, but invigorate storm intensity, lightning and hail from deep clouds. He showed that wind risen sea spray has the opposite effect when it seeds the clouds - it enhance the rain and cleanses the clouds from the air pollution. Based on these findings he developed new methods for rain enhancement by cloud seeding, and provided scientific guidance to such projects in Israel and many other countries. His findings provide a basis for improving weather forecasts, from the immediate range to the prediction of climate change and the extent of possible future global warming.
