Dr. Carlton was one of the leading principle investigators of
SOAS, an atmospheric chemistry field campaign that took place
the summer of 2013.

SOAS projects by Carlton group members include particle-phase
liquid water measurements using the SVDMA (Semi-volatile
Differential Mobility Analyzer) and aqueous chemistry
experiments of samples collected by mist chambers.

Community Multiscale
Air Quality Model (CMAQ)
CMAQ is a 3-dimensional photochemical air quality model.

Current CMAQ projects include:

  • Implementing explicit SOA aqueous chemistry in CMAQ
  • Modeling power plant emissions throughout the New
    Jersey area
  • Partitioning of gases to ice in the atmosphere: Effects on
    nitric acid and the formation of sulfate
