    Analysis of the evolution of aerosol transport due to Nabro Eruption using CALIPSO and HYSPLIT model For many decades, people have known the immense effect of volcanic aerosol on the Earth’s atmosphere. Volcanic aerosol can pose a health hazard for any life on earth, as well as get into upper layers of the atmosphere and […]

    Project: Research about Cirrus Clouds

    View Project Page

    As we all know, cirrus clouds play an important role in the Earth’s energy balance. Cirrus clouds have the dual/opposing characteristics depending on the balance between how much energy it traps from ground emitted infrared radiation and how much solar radiation cirrus reflect back to space. Cirrus clouds are distributed largely in tropical areas because […]
