Research Interests: Anthropogenic emissions and their chemical transformation during atmospheric transport drive critical issues surrounding air quality and climate change. I conduct atmospheric modeling, organize and conduct field and laboratory studies to investigate these topics with the ultimate goal of informing policymakers so society can develop effective strategies that protect human health, ecosystems, agricultural economies and security. My favorite science involves formation of secondary organic aerosol through cloud processing and aerosol water chemistry.

Dr. Carlton is the scientific leader of the SOAS campaign, member of the ACCORD Science Committee at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, member of the National Research Committee tasked with identifying priorities and strategic steps forward for atmospheric chemistry research over the coming decades.

Dr. Carlton is an associate Editor of Reviews of Geophysics
