Personal profile

Personal information

Dr Iris Manola is a postdoctoral researcher at the Water and Climate Risk department of IVM. She is currently working on LAMACLIMA project that aims to quantify the impacts of large-scale land cover and land management changes (global reforestation, deforestation, irrigation and wood harvest) on the large-scale atmospheric circulation using state of the art global climate models. She explores the impacts of land management on climatic mean states, extremes and teleconnection patterns that might affect geographically distant key regions including the world’s breadbaskets.

Her background is on physics and she is specialized in environmental physics. She started her research activities by investigating the effect of orography on long dry and wet spells in Greece. Her PhD was on large scale climate dynamics and weather patterns with a focus on atmospheric and oceanic Rossby waves, the jet stream and teleconnections. She has also worked on the topics of future weather and extreme precipitation, urban weather, as well as the influence of weather patterns on bird migration.


Dynamic meteorology and climatology, numerical modelling, land-atmosphere interactions, teleconnections, extreme weather, climate change impacts and weather from urban to global scale.
