My research is focused on developing and expanding the capabilities of current air-quality and biogeochemical models to better represent the nitrogen cycle, mercury cycle and atmospheric mercury chemistry, and the coupling of ecosystem and air-quality models. Also the development of algorithms to couple ecosystem and air-quality based on first principles through the development of empirical relationships derived from intensive coupled measurement and modeling campaigns. Currently this research is accomplished through three areas of emphasis: 1) local scale modeling and measurement studies to elucidate processes critical in the air-surface exchange of trace gases and model algorithm development, 2) use of novel surface and satellite observations for regional scale model evaluations and model land use parameterizations, 3) the coupling of atmospheric chemical transport models with biogeochemical ecosystem models.
