The Richard E. Honrath Memorial Lecture

Satellite Observations, Earth System Modeling and Public Engagement Synergies: from Wildfires, Enhanced Rock Weathering to Urban Air Pollution Mitigation

Satellite observations and earth system models are excellent tools to investigate atmosphere-biosphere-climate interactions and to project how atmospheric composition, ecosystems and climate may change in the future.  In this seminar, I will present results from a series of projects that deal with the impact of biomass burning and unconventional oil and natural gas operations, and the application of enhanced rock weathering for climate change mitigation. These projects relay on the use of the Earth System Model CESM, and a variety of satellite observations and field measurements.  In addition, I will discuss two projects that aim at increasing public awareness on the importance of good air quality, and using green barriers to mitigate air pollution in school playgrounds in UK cities.
