Welcome to my Biogeochemical Meteorology Group’s page. My research group is attempting to bridge the fields of geophysical turbulence and chemistry through observations on airplanes, sea vessels, and towers. Emphasis is placed on an interdisciplinary understanding of the physical and chemical principles that control trace gas concentrations and their fluctuations in the atmosphere and ocean. The turbulent planetary boundary layers that lie adjacent to the interfaces of the earth, ocean, and sky play host to a great variety of exchange processes that are critical to our understanding of the climate system. We are dedicated to the idea that the ability of the scientific community to advance our understanding at a rate that outpaces the environmental challenges we continue to encounter is strongly contingent upon active training in a multitude of scientific disciplines. We are therefore actively pursuing topics in atmospheric and oceanic photochemistry, boundary layer meteorology, and carbon cycling.
