Lower Atmospheric Research using Unmanned Aerial System Facility (LARUS)


  • To demonstrate UAV systems for various atmospheric measurements

  • To fill data gaps and meet observational requirements for atmospheric process studies and models.

  • Conduct field experiments for vertical profiling of lower atmosphere for high frequency measurements of meteorological and various atmospheric parameters.

  • Measure Aerosol Optical, Physical, Chemical and radiative properties

  • Undertake Aerosol-Radiation interactions & study forcing and heating effects

  • Conduct experiments for Cloud/Fog/haze process studies
