The Atmospheric Physics Laboratory (LFA) investigates the properties of the atmosphere. We especially study the life cycle of aerosols and clouds, and how they may be affected by human activities. We do this in urban areas like São Paulo, looking at issues associated with urban pollution, and in the Amazon, looking at issues linked to global climate change. For this, we operate several experimental sites where we measure optical, physical, and chemical properties of the atmosphere. We also collect filters with particulate matter for specific laboratory analysis. Briefly, the group has been developing the following research:
