Research Interests

Solar irradiance with particular reference to UV irradiance:

- measurements of  global solar irradiance and UVA + UVB irradiance in an urban and rural area

- measurements of sunshine duration

Atmospheric radioactivity - Radon (Rn-222) in the air in Lodz and rural areas:

- meausrements of Rn-222 concentration in the atmosphere at a height of 2m above the ground

- meteorological conditions of radon concentration in the air layer near the groundin an urban and rural areas

- the impact of local and macroscale (Rn-222 transport of air masses) meteorological conditions on Rn-222 concentration levels in the lower troposphere

Urban climate and bioclimate:

- impact of the city on solar irradiation and human thermal sensation

- measurements of  global solar irradiance and UVA + UVB irradiance in an urban canyon

Dynamics and climate variability:

- contemporary changes in sunshine duration, air temperature and precipitation

- extreme weather (cold waves, heat waves)

Human biometeorology

Teaching
