What We Do

Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion Modeling and measurements

The department of applied mathematics serves as a national center for research in atmospheric sciences. Among the areas of focus are development of pollutant transport and dispersion models and of statistical methods for analysis of the atmospheric boundary layer. These are complemented by a rich experience in planning and analyzing field campaigns as well as a new environmental wind tunnel research facility.
