The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency announced today that it has awarded over $700,000 to AirUCI faculty Donald Dabdub and Sergey Nizkorodov.  Their project will help answer the question of how to protect the air we breathe from the impacts of climate change. Donald and Sergey will use the funds to study the effects of ammonia and rising global temperatures on secondary organic aerosol formation.  Both ammonia and organic compounds will be emitted more strongly in the future and this can bring about new chemical reactions, which increase the burden of particulate matter. This research will better quantify the effect of this previously unexplored chemistry by the end of the project.
