The Los Angeles Basin is often thought of as a dry, smoggy, overdeveloped landscape. But a new study funded in part by CPO's Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, and Climate Program shows that the manicured lawns, emerald golf courses and trees of America’s second-largest city have a surprisingly large influence on the city’s carbon emissions.
Atmospheric scientists, funded in part by CPO’s Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle and Climate (AC4) program, developed an improved method to represent the removal of aerosols from the atmosphere in climate and air quality models.
“From using machine learning to develop critical atmospheric datasets to creating an experimental system for rapidly assessing causes of extreme events, these new awards will expedite climate science discoveries and build the library of resilience solutions needed to protect all sectors of our economy and environment.”
Called Frontiers in Atmospheric Chemistry, this high profile virtual seminar series will take place “live” on Zoom webinars on Fridays at 10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern over the 2020-2021 academic year.
Our dear friend and distinguished colleague Dr. Kenneth (Ken) A. Mooney passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on August 17, 2020. While we, his NOAA Climate Program Office (CPO) family, are deeply saddened by his passing and miss him sorely, we are also celebrating his life, leadership, and remarkable legacy of scientific achievements.
