Introduction
My field of interest is influences of the sun on the atmospheric processes and environment on earth. In last few years my team and I have tried to develop models by which the relationship can be explained between the influx of charged particles from the sun and forest fires. Also, I am involved in the research of physical geography, natural hazards and tourism.
