Abstract

In the previous paper, several experimental techniques developed and the results of extensive, multistation observations of atmospheric aerosols have been presented. The present paper deals with the study of trace gas constituents and their role in the chemistry of the troposphere and stratosphere where the interactions between atmospheric gases, aerosols and cloud droplets are known to be very strong. The direct as well as remote sensing experimental techniques and modelling methods that have been developed at the Indian Institute of Tropical Meteorology (IITM), Pune, and employed for determining the trace gas concentrations over different stations associated with a variety of meteorological conditions, are discussed. Also included in the paper are the results of the studies related to precipitation chemistry. The main conclusions drawn from the above studies conducted are summarized and the gaps in the field and need for further research are highlighted.
