Tianfeng Chai co-authored “Elucidating emissions control strategies for ozone to protect human health and public welfare within the continental United States,” a paper that was published in the December 23 issue of Environmental Research Letters. The significance of this paper is that quantifying the contribution of reductions in ozone precursor emissions from each location to reductions in elevated daily maximum eight-hour average ozone, premature mortality, and vegetative potential production loss with adjoint sensitivities allows for more detailed evaluation of potential emissions control strategies than using methods that do not provide the spatially-heterogeneous influences of emissions.

On January 8, Alice Crawford will give a presentation titled “The Future of Volcanic Ash Forecasting” to the NOAA Weather Portfolio team. This five-minute talk will take place via teleconference.
