Atmospheric chemistry is a young field with vital new discoveries being made at a rapid rate. Our understanding of processes such as air pollution, stratospheric ozone depletion, global biogeochemical cycles, and global climate change is limited by the available observational data and by the number of trained investigators in this area. At the University of Maryland our research has focused on building the data base, using these data to improve numerical simulations, using computer model output to identify definitive measurements - through a balance of experiment and theory we can better understand the atmosphere. Collaboration with scientists from other disciplines helps to expand the range of people and variety of tools available to tackle these intriguing questions.
