Chemical Mechanisms in the Atmosphere that Influence Air Quality and Global Climate Change

An accurate understanding of this chemistry is essential to assess, control, and predict the impact of anthropogenic perturbations on the chemical and radiative properties of the atmosphere. Research projects in our group include laboratory kinetics experiments that isolate important chemical reactions, theoretical studies of the reaction mechanisms, and in-situ measurements of free radicals in the atmosphere in both urban and forested environments.
