Juan Luis Guerrero Rascado

Juan Luis Guerrero Rascado is a researcher at the Department of Applied Physics at the University of Granada. He obtained his degree in Physics from the University of Granada, and in 2008 his PhD. degree from the same university. From 2010 to 2011 he performed a postdoctoral stay at the Geophysics Center of Évora, University of Évora (Portugal). Since 2012 he has been teaching at the Department of Applied Physics at the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Granada. In recent years he has taught the subjects of “Meteorology and climatology” and “Energy management and renewable energies” in the Environmental Sciences, “Physics of the Atmosphere” in the degree of Physics and “Complements of physics for the adaptation of the architecture to the environment” in the degree in Architecture”, and “Methods and Techniques of measurement of the atmospheric aerosol” and “Atmospheric Dynamics” in the Master of Geophysics and Meteorology. He oriented several Degree and Master Final Work and PhD. Theses on atmospheric studies.

Juan Luis Guerrero Rascado is member of the Atmospheric Physics Group (GFAT) of the University of Granada. He has extensive experience in remote sensing studies on aerosol and clouds from the Earth's surface. His research is focused on the study of atmospheric aerosols using active remote sensing (lidar and ceilometer) and passive (photometer and microwave radiometers). He develops his research work at the Interuniversity Research Institute of the Earth System in Andalusia (IISTA-CEAMA). He has participated in 28 national and international research projects, some of them linked to the H2020 and the European Space Agency. He has made numerous research stays in Italy, Portugal and Brazil. His capacities in the field of active remote sensing using lidar are recognized by the Latin American Lidar Network (LALINET), whose members have nominated him as consultant since 2012. His lines of research are:

  • Atmospheric aerosol

  • Remote sensing of the atmosphere

  • Clouds

  • Aerosol-cloud interaction
