For 27 years much of my effort has been focused on regional 3-D photochemical modeling in support of NOAA/ESRL/CSL aircraft and ground-based field studies. The modeling system I have focused on mainly is WRF/Chem. NOAA is now committed to a unified modeling system, FV3, being developed as a global model with extensions to the regional scale. Evaluations of aerosols/photochemistry within FV3 using CSL measurements and remote sensing data is a significant fraction of my responsibility. The development of emission inventories and their implementation within regional and global photochemical models also comprises a significant fraction.

Research

(a) Evaluation of regional and global scale photochemical models using measurements from NOAA/ESRL/CSL field studies and atmospheric composition data from remote sensing platforms.
(b) Emissions inventory development, and evaluations of emission inventories using measurements from NOAA/ESRL/CSL field studies.
(c) Gas-phase chemistry and aerosol physics parameterizations within regional and global scale photochemical models, and evaluations of these parameterizations using measurements from NOAA/ESRL/CSL field studies.
