The post-doc will develop instrumentation specially designed for dusty-arid subtropical atmospheric conditions, such as a 6-band 1-axis forward-scattering irradiometer and small portable spectro-polarimeters.
• UAV and roving platforms for reliably and repeatably measuring spectral albedo over extended (1 km2) areas will also be developed.
• The data described above will be needed to assessment of aerosol impacts on DNI trends (spectral, angular and attenuation), as inputs to RT models and for verification of RT analysis, satellite retrievals and for assessing future scenarios
• Since the Postdoctoral experience is transitional to becoming an independent researcher or faculty member, the Postdoctoral fellow must acquire varied skills necessary to advance their career with guidance from their supervisor.
