Lab for Aerosol, Radiation, Remote-sensing, and Observation-based Modeling of Atmosphere (ARROMA)

ARROMA-Research

Research statement


The research interests of the group are the impacts of aerosol pollution on air quality, weather, and climate. The research approaches include satellite remote sensing, meteorology-chemistry coupled modeling, data assimilation, and integration of these elements. Broadly, our work has four categories:


 

1. Satellite/ground remote sensing of aerosols for monitoring air quality and quantifying aerosol climate forcing and sources. See the following research projects for details.


2. Chemistry transport and aerosol-meteorology coupled modeling through assimilation of data collected from lab, ground, and satellite platforms for air quality, aerosol-cloud interaction, and climate studies.


3. Other collaborative work that was not our past focus but provides us necessary background to expand our research in others areas of chemistry-climate interaction.


4. Renewable energy including assessment of wind energy potential and trend over U.S.
