Professional Interests

Dr. Korain investigates weather and climate phenomena through the development and application of high-resolution mesoscale meteorological models (MM5, WRF, RAMS, ARPS, COAMPS), microscale models (LES, Fluent), as well as global and regional climate models. His expertise includes assessing the emission, transport, and dispersion of environmental pollutants using the US Environmental Protection Agency’s regulatory and advanced air quality models for complex terrain (ISC3ST, AERMOD, CALPUFF, CAMx, CMAQ) as well as applying principles of artificial intelligence (neural networks).  His research includes development of a higher-order turbulence closure atmospheric model, a cloud-resolving model, and a large-eddy simulation model, as well as turbulence and radiation parameterizations of existing models.  Dr. Korain also develops models for the transport and dispersion of atmospheric pollutants (modified Gaussian, higher-order closure plume model and Lagrangian stochastic particle model) and integrates these with meteorological models.  Applications include investigation of air-sea interaction, atmospheric dynamics and cloudiness in coastal regions, coupling of the oceanic and atmospheric models, real time weather forecasting; predictability and chaos in weather and climate modeling; atmospheric flow over complex terrain; assessment of wind energy; and evaluation methods applied to atmospheric models.  Analysis of data from aircraft measurements is used for model verification.

Dr. Korain has published over 60 peer-reviewed articles in recognized U.S. and international journals and has presented over 120 conference papers at domestic and international conferences.  He has served as a reviewer for over 40 peer-reviewed journals and various funding agencies in the U.S. and abroad.  He has been invited to visit many institutions and participate in and design environmental research in the US, Denmark, Sweden, Croatia, Brazil, Turkey, Australia, Greece, Uganda, and Chile.  He is actively involved in the Atmospheric Sciences graduate program at the University of Nevada, Reno.  He is teaching graduate level classes and mentoring students in the M.S. and Ph.D. programs.
