Research Interests

Professor Zondlo’s group conducts research in global climate change and air quality by deploying novel optical sensors in the atmosphere and analyzing the data as part of field campaigns on local to global scales. Water vapor and ammonia are examples of two important trace gas species that are critical to aerosol and cloud particle processes. Recent advances in laser-based sensors allow for unprecedented capabilities to observe these and other trace gases in the atmosphere. Instrumentation developed in the laboratory is deployed as part of international field experiments on aircraft-, network-, and ground-based platforms. Specific research areas include cloud and aerosol particle formation, trends and distribution of water vapor in the atmosphere, and emissions of greenhouse gases to the troposphere.
