Main goal

I’m interested in evaluating the radiative impact of aerosol dust on atmospheric dynamics which is an important component of the climate system but is still poorly quantified.

To reach my goals, I use an observations-modelling coupled aproach.

In term of modelling my mean is the regional atmospheric model MesoNH coupled with a dust emission model (the DEAD model) together with the ECWMF analyses. In term of observations, I use the measurements collected during two field campaigns: the BoDEx campaign 2005 and the SOP2a1 2006 of the AMMA project where airborne LIDAR and ground based measurements of meteorological variables were performed. Satellite observations are also investigated in my studies such as CALIPSO , OMI , MODIS and SEVIRI data. For more details, please check the other sections on this website.
