Dr. Reinout Boers (the Hague, Netherlands, 1954) received a BSc. in Physics in 1974, and a MSc. in Meteorology (1979) both from the University of Utrecht. In 1983 he received a Ph.D. in Meteorology from the University of Wisconsin, Madison. Currently Dr. Boers is Senior Research Scientist in the Earth Observation Department, Climate and Seismology Sector, KNMI, the Netherlands. His main research interests are observations and modelling of the indirect aerosol effect, active and passive remote sensing synergy studies, thermodynamic, radiation and microphysical structure of clouds. Between 2001 and 2006 he was Department Head of the Atmospheric Research Department, and between 2006 and 2009 he was Department Head of the Regional Climate Department, both at KNMI.
