Improving air quality modeling

Atmospheric chemistry can have profound impacts on daily life, influencing air quality, UV radiation levels, pollution, climate and weather patterns. Researchers at Washington University in St. Louis will study the advanced modeling techniques used to understand the behavior of chemicals in the atmosphere to improve the models’ accuracy and resolution.

Randall Martin, the Raymond R. Tucker Distinguished Professor at the McKelvey School of Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis, and Chi Li, a postdoctoral fellow in Martin’s lab, will study the errors that arise in model simulations due to coarse spatial resolution with a three-year $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation.
