240U Rowland Hall
|Studies the microphysics of trace gas, aerosol and surface interactions with the Earth’s radiative, thermodynamic and chemical processes.|
|Develops and refines the representation of these processes to improve climate prediction.|
|Predicts and attributes features of climate and climate change using model simulations combined with lab, field and satellite data.|
|Current research includes mineral dust and carbonaceous aerosols, snow lifecycle and albedo, aerosol impacts on ocean biogeochemistry, wind-driven surface energy/mass exchange, climate-disease links and large-scale data analysis.|
Expert in desert dust and fire-emitted soot, snowpack lifecycle and reflectance, wind-dispersal of nutrients and pathogens, wind-drag effects on deserts and oceans, wind energy, volcanos, ice sheet darkening and large-scale data analysis.
