Atmospheric scientists, funded in part by CPO’s Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle and Climate (AC4) program, developed an improved method to represent the removal of aerosols from the atmosphere in climate and air quality models.
A recent article supported by AC4 entitled "Enhanced North American carbon uptake associated with El Niño" was published June 5, 2019, in Science Advances. The study found that long-term atmospheric CO2 observations over North America document a persistent response to the El Niño–Southern Oscillation.
Meet Dr. Kelley Barsanti! She is an Assistant Professor at the University of California Riverside and an affiliate with the Bourns College of Engineering's Center for Environmental Research & Technology (CE-CERT). Read more to learn about her work with AC4 and what success means to her.
Dr. Tran Nguyen is an Assistant Professor at the University of California at Davis. She leads a research lab at UC Davis conducting atmospheric chemistry research, and teaches college courses on environmental chemistry. Read more about how she became a chemist and how she feels about being a woman in science.
