Researchers Information 

The laboratory incorporates six academic staffs. In addition, it is used by graduate and undergraduate students for their advanced researches.

Main Projects

  • Analyzing the physical and dynamical processes effecting the original atmospheric conditions (flood, drought, etc.);

  • Air quality analogies by using atmospheric and chemical models together. Ragional climate modeling: today’s and future’s anologies;

  • Statistical modeling;

  • Weather analysis and short term forecasting;

  • Statistical and dynamical analysis of the atmospheric observations;

  • Visualization of the 2 and 3D data using the graphical programs in the laboratory.
