Profile Summary

Dr Bhavani Kumar Yellapragada is presently working as Project leader for LIDAR at National Atmospheric Research Laboratory (NARL), ISRO in India. Dr Kumar has made significant contribution in the development of technologies related to laser remote sensing instrumentation for environmental research in India namely a boundary layer micro pulse lidar, Dual polarization lidar, Raman lidar and resonance lidar, which are capable of characterizing atmospheric boundary layer dynamics, aerosol particles, clouds, water vapor and mesospheric Sodium layer. Recently his works were recognized by ISRO and conferred with ISRO's prestigious Merit award. He published more than 100 publications Currently he is listed as expert under VIDWAN, an MHRD initiative of Government of India. He is an elected senior member of IEEE. He is also life member of ISRS, ASI add ISOI . He is a Fellow of Earth Science Society (SES) of India. He has guided more than 18 M.Tech Students in LIDAR remote sensing area and presently guiding two Ph.D students on LIDAR related research. Recently he demonstrated an aerosol lidar working in daylight hours with polarization capability. He also developed a novel 1064 nm lidar for cloud and rain studies at NARL site.
