Curriculum Vitae for Yohei Shinozuka

Brief Bio: 

My research employs airborne observation of aerosols to reveal their cloud-nucleating and radiative properties and to promote remote sensing and modeling.
Of the known causes of the ongoing climate change the most poorly quantified is the atmospheric particles—their interactions with clouds and radiation, to be specific. Their complex and variable nature needs to be better understood and monitored. I perform direct measurements of aerosols from research aircraft with high horizontal, vertical and temporal resolution. My analysis uncovers the properties of the sampled aerosols and supports retrievals and simulations on larger spatiotemporal scales.

Relevant Research Experience:
Data Manager of ORACLES, a five-year NASA Earth Venture research project on aerosols and clouds over the southeast Atlantic. Data quality assurance and instrument operation during NASA DC8/P3B/C130, NSF C130 and DOE G1 airborne experiments TRACE-P, INTEX-A&B, MILAGRO, ARCTAS, TCAP, SEAC4RS, ARISE, NAAMES and ORACLES. Post-experiment data analysis for these and other field observations (ACE 1, ACE-Asia, AERONET, DOE ARM).
