Thierry Elias

PhD Physics, Prospection, Studies

His experience concerns observation data analysis to study the optical and microphysical properties of aerosols, which are particles suspended in the atmosphere interacting with the solar radiation. TE is in charge of the 'atmospheric visibiliy' at HYGEOS. He managed the PreViBOSS project on visibility nowcasting in humid conditions favourable to mist and fog formation. TE also offers consultancy prestations to EDF on the aerosol impact on solar ressource for electricity production. TE is the main contributor of the ASoRA project.
