I will describe how stacked flying of the UASs with miniaturized instruments developed by students and post-docs, enabled us to link black carbon to Himalayan glacier melting, to link Atmospheric Brown Clouds to Indian-monsoon weakening , to observe the role of pollution mitigation during Beijing Olympics and most recently, to quantify the role of air-sea interactions in the aerosol-cloud interaction.
