Professor Md. Mozammel Haque

Areas of interest                                       

Dr. Mozammel HAQUE has a wide variety of interests on atmospheric research, with particularly organic aerosols relevant to chemical composition and transformation of aerosols, possible sources of aerosol particles and their effect on air quality as well as climate change. Organic constituents are recently highlighted because they account for a substantial portion of atmospheric particles, up to 50% in mass. Global models predict that biomass burning emissions and secondary organic aerosols (SOA) formation from biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOCs) are the two major sources of organic aerosols (OA). Most of them are water-soluble and they can act as cloud condensation nuclei and ice nuclei, affecting climate by altering the hygroscopic properties of aerosols. Now he is working with Prof. Yanlin Zhang in Yale-NUIST Center on Atmospheric Environment to develop new analytical methods for identifying various organic compounds including anthropogenic organic tracers and their role in the atmosphere.
