Geddes Group @ AGU 2022

Check out all the great work from grad students and postdocs in the Geddes Research Group at this year's Fall Meeting of the AGU in New Orleans (and virtually)!

Taylor Adams is sharing an analysis of our Pandora NO2 observations throughout the urban Boston region:

Bo Wang is sharing work on measurement-model fusion approaches to estimating atmospheric deposition:

Jeff Geddes is sharing an overview of modeling and remote sensing of air quality in our coastal urban environment:

WMO Measurement-Model Fusion for Global Total Atmospheric Deposition Workshop

This week, Jeff is participating in the World Meteorological Organization's Measurement-Model Fusion for Global Total Atmospheric Deposition Workshop, being held virtually and in person in Geneva.

Jeff is giving two talks about research and developments in the Geddes Group: (1) "A Pilot Project for Operational Global O3 Surface Flux Estimates"; and (2) "What is the View from Space? Opportunities and Challenges in Satellite-Informed Methods for Total Atmospheric Deposition Estimates".

CGCS Distinguished Lecture at the University of Toronto

This week, Jeff is in Toronto giving a seminar for the University of Toronto Centre for Global Change Science's Distinguished Lecture Series. The title of this talk is, "Contemporary and Future Changes in Biosphere-Atmosphere-Chemistry Interactions".

Visiting Salt Lake City

This week, Jeff is in Salt Lake City visiting the University of Utah. He is checking in on our Pandora deployment, and giving a seminar for the Department of Atmospheric Sciences seminar series. The title of his talk is, "Challenges and Opportunities in Coastal Urban Air Quality Monitoring: Lessons from the Boston Basin".

Congratulations, Anthony!

Congratulations to Anthony Wong, who successfully defended his PhD dissertation today! A milestone for him and for our group! His thesis includes three already published works on the role of the terrestrial biosphere on modulating atmospheric reactivity and air quality. Anthony will be moving on to a postdoctoral position at MIT. 

10th International GEOS-Chem (IGC10) Meeting

This week, Jeff is traveling to St. Louis for the 10th International GEOS-Chem Meeting.

As co-chair of the Chemistry-Ecosystem-Climate Working Group, Jeff will be participating in discussions about model development and priorities. He is also presenting a poster of Anthony's latest work, called "Impact of Global Climate and Land Use Change on Soil Reactive Ntirogen Emissions".

TEMPO Science Team Meeting

This week is the annual TEMPO Science Team meeting. TEMPO is a geostationary satellite instrument that will be dedicated to monitoring tropospheric pollution over North America, anticipated to launch in early 2023.

Research from our group is being highlighted by postdoc Bo Wang ("High Resolution Modeling of NO2 and O3 in Greater Boston on Sea Breeze and Non-Sea Breeze Days") and collaborator Elena Spinei Lind ("From Street Level to Total Column: Mapping Urban Pollution Using Ground-Based DOAS Measurements").

Pandora Deployment in Salt Lake City

Pandora 139 and 154 are on the move! Graduate student Taylor Adams is in the Salt Lake City region this week to help deploy the Pandoras as part of a NOAA-funded project on urban air quality and greenhouse gas emissions. Pandora 154 is being deployed on the roof of the William Browning Building at the University of Utah (pictured above), and Pandora 139 will be hosted at the Daybreak, South Jordan air monitoring station.

See the map below for the deployment locations.

Pardee Center Faculty Research Fellows

Jeff was recently selected as a 2022 Faculty Research Fellow with the Frederick S. Pardee Center for the Study of the Longer-Range Future. Seed funding from the Center will help support our group's interdisciplinary research on the role of climate- and land use-driven perturbations to atmospheric nitrogen cycling.
