Thesis title : "Spectral aerosol optical depths and radiative forcing : Seasonal and spatial variations".

Description : This thesis explored the differences in model derived and measured atmospheric aerosol forcing. In addition role of different compositional mixing state of aerosols on earth-atmospheric radiation balance over an urban location, populated and polluted region and environmentally distinct locations over the globe were investigated.

Thesis supervisior : Dr. S. Ramachandran, Associate Professor, Physical Research Laboratory, Ahmedabad, India.
