Maximilian Maahn joined PSD's Polar Observations and Processes (POP) Team in March 2016. Max's main research interests include enhancing radar observations of polar clouds and precipitation and understanding how clouds are influenced by aerosols through surface- and in-situ observations. Currently, he is investigating how local emissions from industrial facilities in Alaska can modify cloud properties.
