Goody Award<p>​<span style="font-size: 22.049999237060547px;">Rajan Chakrabarty, assistant professor of energy, environmental & chemical engineering in the School of Engineering & Applied Science, received the 2017 Richard M. Goody Award from Elsevier/Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy & Radiative Transfer.</span><br/></p><img alt="" src="/Profiles/PublishingImages/Chakrabarty_Rajan.jpg?RenditionID=1" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>​The Richard M. Goody Award is given to early-career scientists who work in the fields of atmospheric radiation and remote sensing. It is named for Richard M. Goody, whose pioneering research has had a long-lasting impact on atmospheric radiation, remote sensing and climate change. Chakrabarty received the award at the 16th Electromagnetic and Light Scattering Conference March 24 in College Park, Md.</p><p style="color: #000000; font-family: 'times new roman'; font-size: medium;"></p><p>Chakrabarty’s contributions to this field include application of novel optical instrumentation and numerically-exact computational techniques to quantify the radiative properties of atmospheric carbonaceous aerosols and their consequences for climate change and remote sensing. His expertise led to him being invited to write a review paper with collaborators titled “Aerosol light absorption and its measurement: A review,” in the Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy & Radiative Transfer, which is one of the 10 most cited papers published by the journal in the past seven years.<br/></p>​Rajan Chakrabarty2017-03-30T05:00:00Z​The Richard M.
