Abin Thomas (July 2017 - February 2022)

E-mail: jyabin94@gmail.com

 

Abin defended his thesis titled "Aerosol and Cloud Radiative Properties over India and Adjoining Seas" on 16 February 2022. Abin’s thesis demonstrated; 1) winter hazy days (aerosol loading) increasing at a much faster rate over Central India than Indo-Gangetic Plain in the recent years, 2) anthropogenic aerosol emission over IGP contribute significantly (20-25%) to the aerosol radiative forcing over outflow region of the Bay of Bengal, 3) aerosol-cloud interactions signals are possibly different over the Arabian Sea and the Bay of Bengal, 4) the instantaneous response of cloud microphysical properties and meteorological conditions is different for different rain regimes (stratiform and convective).
