Pratibha B. Mane has her expertise in vertical distribution of atmospheric aerosols in association with different types of natural activities (such as meteor activities, twilight airglow, volcanic eruptions, dust storms, cloud formation etc.) as well as anthropogenic activities.
She has developed the instrument ‘Twilight Photometer’ after years of experience in research to study variations in Aerosol Number Density (AND) in connection with different weather parameters such as temperature, pressure, humidity, different types of clouds etc.
