My study

Understanding the nature of the Earth atmosphere

Based on balloon-borne observations, I have tried to understand more clearly the air mass transport and chemical distribution in the troposphere and stratosphere from the dynamical standpoint. My scientific interests are as follows.

  • Dehydration processes in the tropical tropopause layer
  • Air mass transport associated with deep convections
  • Cloud microphysics
  • Air mass transport processes from troposphere to stratosphere
  • Circulation in the stratosphere
  • Changing in transport field caused by global climate change
