I use A-Train as well as ISCCP geostationary satellite data to unfold the mystery behind the convective transport of aerosols and the influence of those transported aerosols on those clouds. I use the software IDL to analyse the data. My primary research interests are:
- Transport of Pollutants from the Lower Troposphere to Upper Troposphere and Lower Stratosphere.
- Physical and Dynamic Structure of Deep Convection
- Analysis of Satellite data (NASA A-Train, ISCCP)
Current Research Projects
Life Cycle analysis of deep convections to understand the role of cloud dynamics and the physical structure on aerosol transport to the upper troposphere.
