National Training Workshop On: Climate impacts of carbonaceous Aerosols and Modeling (NT-CCAM-2)

Date: 25 -27 June 2024

Venue: IITM, Pune


The carbonaceous aerosols influence the climate by altering the earth’s radiation budget. The major carbonaceous aerosols include Elemental carbon (EC), Black carbon (BC), Brown carbon (Brc) and organic carbon (OC). While the former three aerosols are majorly absorbing in nature, the latter one has both scattering and absorbing character. Out of these BC is considered as the second most global warming agent after CO2. However, the present-day awareness about these aerosols is limited. A 5-day extensive workshop was organized during Dec 4-7, 2023, on the measurement aspects of carbonaceous aerosols.

Hence on continuation to the former workshop, it is proposed to organize a 3-day modelling workshop for early carrier research fellows/Master students on the aspect of climate impact of carbonaceous aerosols.


The workshop is proposed to address the WRF-Chem modelling technique for studying the impact of carbonaceous aerosols. Along with basic theory of the model, major results obtained using these models on carbonaceous aerosol studies will be described. Extensive hands-on training also will be given for the participants to get used to the modelling.


This workshop would focus on key and emerging topics regarding WRF-Chem modelling of carbonaceous aerosols. The basic theory of WRF-Chem model along with major results obtained on impacts of carbonaceous aerosols will be described. The workshop themes will cover the WRF-Chem modelling aspects of carbonaceous aerosols. The format of this workshop will include lectures and extensive hands-on training on WRF-Chem.
