Rick D Saylor
Dr. Rick D. Saylor is a Physical Scientist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Air Resources Laboratory, Atmospheric Turbulence and Diffusion Division, in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and an Associate Research Professor at the University of Tennessee in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in Knoxville, Tennessee. He obtained a B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering at the University of Kentucky and has over 28 years of experience as a researcher in atmospheric chemistry and air quality. His expertise includes analysis and interpretation of field measurement data of trace gases and particulate matter and modeling of atmospheric physics and chemistry across all scales from small-scale process models to regional- and global-scale 3-D models. He has held research positions in a variety of settings, including the U. S. EPA National Exposure Research Laboratory, at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, in the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Georgia Tech, for Atmospheric Research & Analysis, Inc., and now at NOAA. His current research interests include air-surface exchange modeling and measurements and atmospheric deposition of nitrogen and other nutrients to coastal ecosystems.
