Numerical simulation of atmospheric physical and chemical processes
Nitrogen and sulphur deposition
My post at CEH as an air pollution modeller involves computer modelling studies of air pollution at a national scale (with the FRAME model), including gaseous emissions, chemical transformation, diffusion and wet and dry deposition processes. My research focuses primarily on the deposition of nitrogen and sulphur compounds but also includes heavy metals, base cations and particulate matter. My work is applied to advise government policy on future emissions abatement and to the regional authorities on regulation of pollutant emissions. I cooperate with the Universities of Wrocław (Poland) and the Chinese Agricultural University to support the development of new initiatives in national scale air pollution modelling capabilities. I work closely with Imperial College, London on integrated assessment modelling to find the most cost-effective pollutant emissions abatement strategies to protect natural ecosystems and human health.
