UW Researchers Contribute to Paper Examining High Winter Ozone Levels

Shane Murphy (far right), stands next to a mobile lab used to measure methane and VOC levels coming from individual oil and gas wells. Murphy is the co-writer of a Nature paper that examines high ozone levels near oil and gas wells during the winter. Also pictured are, from left, Robert Field, associate research scientist; Dustin Snare, graduate student; and Jeff Soltis, associate research scientist, all in the UW Department of Atmospheric Science.

Faculty Highlights

Atmospheric Science professor, Thomas Parish, is participating in the $4.25 million DOE Wind Energy Grant led by Jonathan Naughton of the Mechanical Engineering department. Dr. Parish will be responsible for Atmospheric Modeling.
Professor Snider's areas of expertise are cloud chemistry and aerosol physics. Both endeavors have yielded results essential for understanding the response of clouds, and the atmosphere in general, to changing levels of air pollution.
Professor Zhien Wang's work centers on understanding cloud processes using remote sensing tools such as lidar and radar. He was awarded NSF five year Faculty Early Career Development grant (CAREER), NSF's most prestigious honor for young faculty members who are 'most likely to become the academic leaders of the 21st century.'
