Transformation of organics in the unpolluted atmosphere

Project description

Much of atmospheric chemistry has focused on polluted, urban environments, but it is emerging that there is important unknown chemistry occuring in the unpolluted atmosphere. This shortfall prohibits us from fully understanding, for instance, the lifetime of greenhouse gases like methane. We are investigating the new chemical processes needed to describe the fate of organic compounds in the unpolluted atmosphere.
