Last summer we hosted a workshop at Whiteface Mountain in the Adirondacks. A nice summary in AGU’s Eos just came out: https://eos.org/meeting-reports/designing-mountaintop-cloud-experiments
In Issue 59 (Mar/Apr 2017) of the IGAC news there is a write up of the workshop hosted by Drs. Carlton, Barth and Lance at the Whiteface Mountain Observatory in the Adirondacks. You can read more about the workshop and other IGAC activities in their online newspaper here: http://igacproject.org/publications/news
As a graduate student, Sari worked on the SOAS campaign. Now she resides at the Earth Observatory of Singapore, part of Nanyang Technological University. Congratulations on your paper, Sari!
While a graduate student, Dr. Carlton conducted experiments on Rutgers’ Cook campus that provide a plausible mechanism by which oxalic acid and other carboxylic acids can form to create particle mass from common water-soluble gases through cloud processing. Today Dr. Carlton was recognized with the Fenton Award from the Cook alumni association for that work.…
Principal Investigator Manabu Shiraiwa was awarded a grant from the Department of Energy: “IMPACTS OF PHASE STATE AND WATER CONTENT ON SECONDARY ORGANIC AEROSOL FORMATION AND PARTITIONING”. Dr. Carlton’s group will assist in developing parameterizations of molecular corridor chemistry implementable in 3-dimensional atmospheric models.
Dr. Carlton spoke today at the National Academy of Science’s Beckman Center in Irvine, CA. Dr. Carlton is part of UC-Irvine’s ‘High Impact Hire’ Symposium and was a highlighted speaker.
We worked for years to implement a generalized solver so we could more easily expand the aqueous chemical mechanism for cloud chemistry in EPA’s atmospheric model. A 3 stage Rosenbrock solver that enables simultaneous solution of partitioning, oxidation, equilibrium, etc. as it happens in the atmosphere is implemented and available as open source code. Read…
