Mazzola Mauro

Mazzola Mauro He mainly deals with two research topics: the physical and optical characterization of atmospheric particulate matter, also known as aerosol, and the estimate of the energy balance at the surface. As for the first topic, he uses techniques such as solar and lunar photometry for the estimation of the optical thickness of the aerosols in the atmosphere, the in-situ measurement of the scattering and absorption coefficients and the size distribution, through online optical. This last type of measurement is also carried out on profiles obtained by means of a tethered balloon. As for the energy balance, he uses an integrated approach between measurements and calculation codes for the radiative part, while the heat and mass balances are estimated by direct eddy covariance measurements. These activities take place mainly at the CNR infrastructures in Ny-Ålesund (Svalbard) and at the Korean base Jang Bogo in Antarctica, a country in which a close collaboration has been active for years.
He is author of about 100 publications including journal articles and contributions in scientific books.
