Changes in the atmosphere can have profound impacts on human health, climate, and the ecosystem. Our research seeks to improve understandings of atmospheric composition in a changing world, its coupled relationship with the climate system and societal choices such as energy, and the use of such understanding to improve model predictive capability and to aid in societal decision-making. To accomplish this research, we use a combination of modeling, observations, and data analysis/mining methods.
