research overview

  • The Atmospheric Trace Molecule Spectroscopy Laboratory (ATMOSpeclab) investigates Chemistry at the interface of Air Quality and Climate. We design, assemble, characterize and deploy optical spectroscopic instruments (in-situ and remote sensing) to measure atmospheric trace gases, radicals and aerosol optical properties; carry out field observations from ground, ships, and research aircraft; conduct laboratory experiments; and use these observations to construct and test numerical models. Research in the ATMOSpeclab improves the interpretation of satellite measurements of atmospheric composition in remote regions of the Earth atmosphere. Society benefits from more robust tools to manage air resources, and mitigate climate change.
