Prof. Dr. Md. Rafi Uddin, Prof. Dr. Nasreen Akter and Mr. A. T. M. Shafiul Azam are working in this research field. The atmospheric physics group is dealing with the topics of synoptic and mesoscale phenomena in the atmosphere and surrounding ocean which broadly cover monsoon meteorology, satellite meteorology, radar meteorology, cloud dynamics, tropical cyclone and climate change. This group is analyzing the severe thunderstorm, lightning, rainfall, temperature, drought, tropical cyclone and aerosol concentration in Bangladesh using the observational and model data. They are using mesoscale and cloud-resolving models for studying the characteristics and organization of the convection developed in and around Bangladesh. This group is currently involved in several collaborative research projects with Japan.
