Research interest and expertise
Laser remote sensing is one of the applications of laser spectroscopy in geospace science. The most common application is applying various linear or nonlinear light scattering processes between laser and particles to resolve the temporal and spatial variations of main constituents of the atmosphere (or water) to study the dynamics from the mid-atmosphere to planetary boundary layer, the transportation air parcels (such as dust, clouds, and aerosols), and the energy budget of atmospheric radiation, etc. My research interest mainly focuses on how to apply laser spectroscopy and particle scattering to achieve laser remote sensing technologies related to air quality and boundary layer dynamics, such as aerosol optics, ozone, wind, etc.

Email: yichunchen@gate.sinica.edu.tw
Research interest and expertise
Apply multi-sensory satellite observations to explore the temporal and spatial variations of atmospheric pollutants and aerosols over East Asia to understand the atmospheric chemical and physical mechanisms affecting air quality. Further, the latest satellite data is utilized to estimate the emission inventory of aerosol precursors, which is expected to improve the forecast of urban air quality. In addition, I’m interested in studying the complex interactions between aerosols, clouds, and climate.

Chou, Charles C.-K.
CEO & Research Fellow
TEL: +886-2-2787 5889
Email: ckchou@gate.sinica.edu.tw
Research interest and expertise
Secondary air pollutants, particularly secondary aerosols and ozone, are the major atmospheric constituents causing air quality deterioration. We deploy various instrument to explore the atmospheric physical and chemical mechanisms for the formation of secondary aerosols and ozone. The results of our research are applied to elucidate the causes responsible for air pollution and, in turn, to the formulation of strategies for improving urban air quality.
