STATEMENT OF RESEARCH WORK

Scientific work includes two aspects of research and development- (a) fundamental contributions in the field of Atmospheric and Environment Science, particularly, tropical atmospheric chemistry, focusing on air pollutants and short-lived climate forcing agents, and (b) system development and impact assessment for practical applications to the society. Nominee have been involved in all three-core aspect of research and development, namely, experimental, theoretical modeling and diagnostic works. Designed and developed India's first metro air quality forecasting framework for four Indian mega cities and dedicated to nation as an operational service. Developed high-resolution gridded emission inventories of major air pollutants and greenhouse gases for different metro cities that fulfilled the critical input for forecasting models as well as helped plan mitigation strategies. In other important assessment of climate change signals in the upper atmosphere has been done for the first time which revealed cooling in this region because of increase in greenhouse gases. This finding has strong implications in navigation system, radio communication, and satellite movement.
