Atmospheric PhysicsFaculty, students, and scientists in the UMBC Atmospheric Physics (ATPH) graduate program carry out research in numerous areas in collaboration with affiliated and adjunct faculty from NASA and NOAA. Springer could use the article in entire or in part in electronic form, such as use in databases or information networks for display, print or download to stationary or portable gadgets. 15 In the present day, the time period additionally consists of the science of the corresponding regions of the atmospheres of different planets.

A big portion of our work consists of analysis funded through NASA’s R&A program. The project “Independent growth and application of Nested Air High quality Prediction Modeling System(NAQPMS)” led by WANG Zifa, ZHU Jiang, LI Jie and TANG Xiao from Institute of Atmospheric Physic…

The solution of the radiative transfer equations to acquire the fluxes is computationally very expensive, so relying on the model configuration, full radiation calculations are performed on a lowered (coarser) radiation grid and/or on a reduced time frequency.

The sphere of meteorology and atmospheric physics is split into Theoretical Meteorology, which is mathematically oriented, and Experimental Meteorology, which offers with the remark and interpretation of atmospheric processes. Change into familiar with thermodynamic concepts for atmospheres with and with out water vapour, and make use of thermodynamic diagrams for evaluation of stability and cloud formation from radiosonde soundings.

The group carries out fundamental analysis in areas of physics related to (1) planetary fluid dynamics and climate dynamics utilizing theory and computation, (2) experimental design and implementation of worldwide observational/distant sensing methods, and (3) state-of-the-artwork evaluation of noticed global-scale knowledge.
