Aerosol Characterization and receptor modEling

Welcome to the Aerosol Characterization and receptor modEling (ACE) group in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at IISER Bhopal. The overall research goal of our group is to provide policy relevant inputs for mitigating and managing ambient aerosol induced burden on air quality, health and climate over locations in India. The research expertise of our group lies in the area of receptor modeling for aerosol source apportionment. Thank you for stopping by our page and we do hope you will enjoy exploring it.
