Mitigate Nitrogen in estuaries

David Williams:

How can we mitigate nitrogen/nitrates introduction to estuaries, while at the same time not increasing N2O from denitrification? We need to be able to reduce both nitrates in water and N2O in air.

Trace Gas Spectometers

David Williams

 

We need trace gas spectrometer systems for real-time measurements, including various types of quasi-cascade lasers (QCLs) integrated into multipath cells or cavity ringdown cells. Multiple compounds can be measured simultaneously and continuously.

Need for global air quality models

Russ Bullock: Interactions between air quality (AQ) and climate are not isolated to any region, they are global. To address the effects of air quality policy on climate change, a global scope is required. Many air pollutants are distributed globally. The effect of climate change on their behavior can only be assessed with a global aspect. A one-atmosphere modeling strategy is not fully implemented by simulating ...more »
