News & Announcements
This week, graduate student Anthony Wong is presenting at the annual Community Earth System Model (CESM) Workshop. Anthony is presenting in the Whole Atmosphere and Chemistry-Climate Working Group Meeting. The title of his presentation is: "Impact of global climate and land use change on soil reactive nitrogen emissions - implication on air quality".
You can watch a recording of his presentation available on the CESM YouTube channel here.
This week Jeff is participating in the annual TEMPO Science Team Meeting. TEMPO is a geostationary satellite instrument dedicated to monitoring tropospheric emissions and pollutants over North America, scheduled to launch in 2022. Jeff is involved in algorithm development for TEMPO, and is interested in how ground-based observations can be used to evaluate the satellite-derived products of air quality. Jeff presented an update on the group's Pandora network, "Two Years of Pandora Observations in Boston: Lessons learned with a view towards geostationary satellite validation".
The Geddes Group welcomes Sophie Abou-Rizk, who is joining the group as a summer research assistant. Sophie is an undergraduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, with interests in atmospheric chemistry. Welcome Sophie!
This week, Jeff is the invited speaker for Environment and Climate Change Canada's Air Quality Research Division Seminar Series. The title of his talk is "Air Quality and Surface-Atmosphere Interactions: Modeling and remote sensing from urban-to-global scales".
This week, Jeff will be giving a talk for the Atmospheric Sciences Seminar Series at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada. The title of his presentation is, "Exploring Contemporary Changes in Biosphere-Atmosphere-Chemistry Interactions".
The Geddes Group welcomes Jenna Rindy, who is joining the group as a Ph.D. student co-supervised with Pam Templer of the BU Biology Department. Currently, Jenna is interested in studying the composition and impacts of particulate matter deposited to urban tree canopies. Welcome Jenna!
The Geddes Group welcomes Bo Wang, who is joining us as a postdoctoral fellow. Bo earned a PhD from the University of Alabama Huntsville. We are excited to have her expertise in the group! Welcome Bo.
The Geddes Group has two presentations at the AGU 2020 meeting (being held virtually). Grad student Anthony Wong will be presenting new work on soil reactive nitrogen emissions (abstract), and grad student Taylor Adams will be presenting preliminary results on COVID-related impacts on air quality in the Boston area as measured from the ground with in-situ and remote sensing instruments (abstract).
Jeff will also be co-convening the second annual session on Biosphere-Atmosphere-Chemistry interactions.
The Geddes Group welcomes Fernando Santos, who is joining us as a postdoctoral fellow. Fernando earned a PhD in atmospheric chemistry from the Brazilian Institute for Space Research, and since November 2018 he has held research appointments at the University of Maryland and at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. We are excited to have him join us!
This week, Jeff will be the invited speaker for the Frontiers of Atmospheric Chemistry Seminar Series, co-hosted virtually by MIT, Colorado State University, University of Michigan, Reed College, University of Toronto, and UC Davis. Jeff's talk is called, "Exploring Contemporary Changes in Biosphere-Atmosphere-Chemistry Interactions". Be sure to register in advance and tune-in live on Friday, October 16.
