Research Interests

The Atmospheric Resources Research Program is directed at research and graduate education in biosphere-atmosphere interactions. This includes forest, agriculture, and wild land meteorology studies of atmospheric - vegetation, land and water exchange processes; biometeorology studies of the microclimate as the biological environment; research instrumentation design and development; development of numeric and statistical mathematical models of the states and processes which control the exchanges of energy, pollutants and other matter between organisms and their local environment.

The agriculture and forest meteorology research program is one of the best equipped and staffed university programs in the U.S. The program facilities include an environmental wind tunnel, a LIDAR-laser and sensor development lab, and a mobile micrometeorology profile measurement and data logging system. The mobile system has been used in inter-agency cooperative field experiments in California, Colorado, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and New Mexico as well as Connecticut. The program has a complete range of computational capabilities in addition to the university main frame facilities. They consist of networked SUN and IBM workstations and pentium PCs for each graduate student and faculty member.

Research projects have been initiated with the general philosophy that research cannot be separated from education and service at public universities. Most of the basic research problems worked on have been selected to fill the knowledge gaps needed to solve specific environmental problems in Connecticut. Recognition of the long delays between the research and its application to specific problems has led to a continuous effort to apply expertise generated in research projects at the University to environmental problems in the state.
