1 - Chemical and physical process in the low atmosphere

1 - Chemical and physical process in the low atmosphereStudies of the atmospheric boundary layer provide parameterizations of surface-atmosphere fluxes and reconstruction of the atmospheric vertical profiles for different stability conditions to support the understanding of the vertical distribution of aerosol and pollutant.

The atmospheric aerosol is an important pathway by which chemical compounds are transported both locally and on a global scale. At the ground, aerosol measurements allow to investigate natural and anthropogenic sources highlight and apportion the natural and anthropic sources and transport processes. Tethered balloon is a valuable tool for profiling black carbon (BC) concentration, aerosol size distribution, aerosol scattering coefficients, and chemical composition.
