Paolo Colandrea Remote Sensing, Hyperspectral data processing RESEARCH INTERESTS AND EXPERIENCE My main research interests are focused on atmospheric chemistry. The aim is to understand the processes that control the budgets of atmospheric aerosols and gases that play a key role in the context of global climate change and in regional air quality. The main tools adopted are: 3-D computer models of atmospheric processes that affect chemical species, and data from both in-situ and remotesensing instruments.
