Research Projects

Weather and air quality

Numerical models, in conjunction with the observations from the NYS Mesonet, were used to study local weather and air quality phenomena in NY state.

Wildfire smoke plumes

Long-range transport of smoke aerosols and their impacts on local air quality were investigated using satellite measurements, ground-based networks, and model products. Machine learning algorithms were applied to characterize key contributors to surface PM concentrations.

Aerosol-weather interaction

Numerical experiments were conducted to understand the impact of aerosol-radiation-cloud interaction on medium-range weather forecasts as well as to characterize the impact of aerosol transmittance effects on satellite infrared radiance data assimilation.
