Research Description

Effects of Nitrate Chemistry on Tropospheric Ozone Modeling
During this project I will use the Comprehensive Air Quality Model with Extensions (CAMx) to quantitatively study and evaluate the effects of updated nitrogen chemistry on the formation of tropospheric ozone, which has been identified as a criteria pollutant under the National Ambient Air Quality Standards. This information on ozone will in turn be used to further understand the effects of this atmospheric chemistry on projected threats to human health in urban centers.
