Sponsored Research

  • An Integrated Assessment of Emissions, Air Quality, Economic, and Health Impacts of Transport Policies in China, sponsored by the Energy Foundation
  • Evaluating the relative importance of direct and indirect agricultural N2O emissions over the United States using forward modeling and atmospheric N2O and river nutrient data, sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
  • Assessing the terrestrial and atmospheric nitrogen cycle: Implications for atmospheric chemistry and climate, sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
  • Collaborative Research: Measurements of Selected Combustion Emissions in Nepal and Bhutan Integrated with Source Apportionment and Chemical Transport Modeling for South Asia, sponsored by the National Science Foundation

Additional Research

We conduct research related to the source, magnitude, and the impacts of emissions linked to air pollution, ozone depletion and climate change, as well as policy measures to reduce these emissions. Our current projects are:

  • Estimating past, present, and future global soil nitrous oxide emissions
  • Comparing various emissions inventories in Asia
  • Assessing what drives the seasonal and inter-annual variability of nitrous oxide emissions/mixing ratio
  • Quantifying the impacts of different emission sources on Asian air quality and health
  • Analyzing indoor air quality in Tibet.
