 Past Research

Electric Power Generation and Air QualityElectric Power Generation and Air Quality
Research in our group has explored how electric power generation impacts air pollution, and the costs of reducing those impacts. »
Inverse Modeling of Atmospheric Response to Emission TrendsInverse Modeling of Atmospheric Response to Emission Trends
Scientific investigations and environmental decision-making rely on environmental models to accurately simulate not only pollutant concentrations but also their sensitivities to emissions. Simulating sensitivities is especially challenging for air pollutants such as ozone and particulate matter that exhibit nonlinear and highly variable responses to multiple precursor emissions. »
Uncertainty in Integrated Air Quality PlanningUncertainty in Integrated Air Quality Planning
As states finalize implementation plans to achieve current ozone and particulate matter (PM) standards, more stringent standards may prompt a new wave of attainment planning. »
