ATMOSPHERIC PHYSICS

In this group, research is concentrated mainly in the field of Climate Modelling, Satellite Meteorology, Radar Meteorology, Monsoon Meteorology and Tropical Cyclone. This group is currently involved in MAHASRI and GEOSS projects with the collaboration to Japanese research group. These projects are funded by Grant Aid of Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport in Japanese Government, Japan, for real time flood monitoring and forecasting in this region, especially in the Meghna Basin of Bangladesh. They are currently involved in a collaboration research with HyARC, Nagoya University for the statistical studies on the characteristics of precipitation in and around Bangladesh. The project is funded by TRMM-RA4. They are also using MM5 modelling system from 2002 for studying the organization mechanism and basic characteristics of convections develop in this region. Regional Climate Model (RCM) named RegCM3 is running in the Department from 2004 under APN project through BUP, Bangladesh. Another RCM called PRECIS is running in the Department from 2005 with the collaboration to DoE (Department of Environment), Ministry of Environment and Forest. RCMs are using to obtain the climatic scenario in this region.
