Grossman-Clarke, Susanne
Arizona State University

Dr. Grossman-Clarke received her PhD in Geoecology from the University of Potsdam, Germany. She received her MA and BSc in Physics from Humboldt University, Berlin, Germany. Susanne studies atmospheric dynamics and has been working with Arizona State University (ASU) since 2000. Her current research emphasizes the improvement of atmospheric boundary layer schemes and the physical representation of urban surfaces in meso-scale meteorological models MM5 and WRF. The models are applied in order to study the influence of urbanization on weather in the Phoenix metropolitan region. In previous research with the Potsdam-Institute for Climate Impact Research, (Germany) Grossman-Clarke studied the impact of elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations on the energy exchange in Soil-Vegetation-Atmosphere systems and crop growth
