Description: 

We are specifically interested in the climate impacts of diesel particulate matter, especially that produced from biodiesel combustion, which has been viewed lately as a promising replacement fuel. We are also beginning to investigate atmospheric sources of "brown carbon" particles that are produced by combustion and that absorb significantly more light in the UV than in the visible part of the spectrum.
