Studies on optical characteristics of aerosols and their long-term variation

Study period:2004 - 2009
Organization (1):
Investigating Researcher (3):
Research overview:
Aerosol particles, which cause climatic change through cloud formation and solar scattering phenomena, have wide varieties in composition and size distribution. Some aspects of aerosols such as optical thickness and size distribution are observed and analyzed using sun photometry. We plan to construct an aerosol data-base open for user communities.
