    Specialties of Martin Wild:
    Impact of variations in the global energy balance on various aspects of climate change
    There is increasing evidence that anthropogenic activities lead to significant perturbations of the global energy balance. This is seen for example in the phenomenon of global dimming and brightening, which refers to decadal decreases and increases of solar radiation at the Earth's surface, respectively. These alterations have a strong impact on various aspects of climate change, such as global warming, the intensity of the hydrological cycle, the retreat of snow cover and glaciers, and biospheric growth. Thus they affect different economical sectors such as water management, agriculture or tourism.
