The GEOS-Chem community goal is to advance the understanding of human and natural influences on the environment through a comprehensive, state-of-the-science, readily accessible global model of atmospheric composition, named GEOS-Chem.
Ambient fine particulate matter (PM2.5) is the leading environmental risk factor for the global burden of disease. SPARTAN measures globally-distributed fine particulate concentrations to evaluate and enhance satellite remote sensing estimates of PM2.5.
The Department of Energy, Environmental & Chemical Engineering maintains a set of shared facilities as outlined below. The facilities range from routine chemical, physical and materials characterization facilities, to state-of-the-art nanomaterials synthesis facilities.
These facilities are available to researchers in the department and others at the university, local region and worldwide.
