The Arctic is warming at twice the rate of the global average and soils are rapidly warming. Current projects: Scaling carbon fluxes across the YK Delta
For the past decade, observations of carbonyl sulfide (OCS or COS) have been investigated as a proxy for carbon uptake by plants. Current Project: Mercury in forests
Our observations in New York City include measurements of carbon dioxide, methane and carbon monoxide from a tall building, ground-based mobile platforms and small aircraft. We also measure species that are co-emitted with methane from different sources, ethane and nitrous oxide, at the CUNY NGENS Observatory.
Our understanding of the atmospheric composition of the most remote regions of the world has been limited by a lack of observations - until now. Current Project: NASA ATom Project
