LAR Research Activities
The LAR has a long history of participation in national and international field programs related to air quality research. This emphasis upon field research continues today, but it is now balanced by a growing capability in advanced numerical air quality modeling and laboratory work.
Agriculture and Air Quality Understanding nitrogen cycling, estimating windblown dust, measuring feedlot emissions
Regional Air Quality
A combination of computer modeling and regional measurements, including satellite data
Quantifying biogenic emissions, carbon exchange, deposition of metals and nutrients
Urban Air Quality
Determining the ultimate fate of pollutants exported from urban areas
Exploring future air-quality conditions as related to the effects of global change
Interpreting remote sensing data from the surface, aircraft, and satellites to retrieve properties of the atmosphere
Student Research Opportunities
LAR offers numerous opportunities for students to work with diverse faculty using the latest technologies. Our research includes field work, laboratory testing, and computer modeling.» Graduate Opportunities
