Current Fields of Interest

Regional and global climate modeling; Laboratory and ambient measurements of sea spray aerosol hygroscopicity and cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) properties; Application of remotely sensed data (MODIS, MISR, CALIPSO) for exploring potentially important interactions between marine aerosols, ocean productivity, clouds, and climate; Parameterization of marine organic aerosol emissions for regional air quality and global circulation models; Global scale modeling of micronutrient transport (with the emphases on bioavailable iron) to the oceans using 3-D chemistry transport models; Measurements of trace gas emissions from different phytoplankton species; Evaluation of the human impact on marine ecosystem productivity and carbon cycle.
