Atmospheric Physics

Materials and Atmospheric Physics

Participating Faculty


The on-campus Atmospheric Physics group develops and uses multispectral photoacoustic instruments and sun photometers to measure atmospheric aerosols, with applications to climate, visibility, air pollution and public health. Instruments are used in both ground-based and airborne applications. These instruments use optical and acoustical methods to measure particle size, composition, and morphology of small particles in the atmosphere.

Collaborating with the Desert Research Institute

The University's Department of Physics actively collaborates with the Division of Atmospheric Science at the Desert Research Institute.
