conduct laboratory experiments of aerosols to quantify their
spectral absorption, hygroscopic and microphysical properties.
We also formulate various modeling tools to improve
process-level understanding (e.g. role of mixing state, brown
carbon) of these properties including new particle formation.
addition, we are conducting comprehensive analyses to improve
our understanding of physical and optical properties of aerosols
over the Indo-Gangetic Basin. This involves aerosol-related data
from various platforms including long-term ground based and
satellite, as well as intensive short- term campaign. Our
ultimate goal is to accurately represent aerosol effects in the
regional climate-chemistry models that are used to estimate the
climate and health impacts of aerosols over the Indo-Gangetic
Basin. We are also interested in the development of new
techniques for measurement of aerosol absorption.
