  • Wood Vault: remove atmospheric CO2 with trees, store wood for carbon sequestration for now and as biomass, bioenergy and carbon reserve for the future 

    Zeng, Ning; Hausmann, Henry (Springer Nature, 2022-04-01)
    Wood harvesting and storage (WHS) is a hybrid Nature-Engineering combination method to combat climate change by harvesting wood sustainably and storing it semi-permanently for carbon sequestration. To date, the technology ...
  • Full Results Accompanying A Machine Learning Examination of Hydroxyl Radical Differences Among Model Simulations for CCMI-1 

    Nicely, Julie M.; Duncan, Bryan N.; Hanisco, Thomas F.; Wolfe, Glenn M.; Salawitch, Ross J.; Deushi, Makoto; Haslerud, Amund S.; Jöckel, Patrick; Josse, Béatrice; Kinnison, Douglas E.; Klekociuk, Andrew; Manyin, Michael E.; Marécal, Virginie; Morgenstern, Olaf; Murray, Lee T.; Myhre, Gunnar; Oman, Luke D.; Pitari, Giovanni; Pozzer, Andrea; Quaglia, Ilaria; Revell, Laura E.; Rozanov, Eugene; Stenke, Andrea; Stone, Kane; Strahan, Susan; Tilmes, Simone; Tost, Holger; Westervelt, Daniel M.; Zeng, Guang (2020)
    The hydroxyl radical (OH) plays critical roles within the troposphere, such as determining the lifetime of methane (CH4), yet is challenging to model due to its fast cycling and dependence on a multitude of sources and ...
  • Climate model shows large-scale wind and solar farms in the Sahara increase rain and vegetation 

    Li, Yan; Kalnay, Eugenia; Motesharrei, Safa; Rivas, Jorge; Kucharski, Fred; Kirk-Davidoff, Daniel; Bach, Eviatar; Zeng, Ning (Science, 2018-09-07)
    Wind and solar farms offer a major pathway to clean, renewable energies. However, these farms would significantly change land surface properties, and, if sufficiently large, the farms may lead to unintended climate ...
  • Ozone production and its sensitivity to NOx and VOCs: results from the DISCOVER-AQ field experiment, Houston 2013 

    Mazzuca, Gina M.; Ren, Xinrong; Loughner, Christopher P.; Estes, Mark; Crawford, James H.; Pickering, Kenneth E.; Weinheimer, Andrew J.; Dickerson, Russell R. (Copernicus Publications, 2016-11-22)
    An observation-constrained box model based on the Carbon Bond mechanism, version 5 (CB05), was used to study photochemical processes along the NASA P-3B flight track and spirals over eight surface sites during the September ...
  • Analysis of Summertime PM2.5 and haze in the Mid-Atlantic Region 

    Chen, L.-W. Antony; Chow, Judith C.; Doddridge, Bruce G.; Dickerson, Russell R.; Ryan, William F.; Mueller, Peter K. (Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA), 2003)
    Observations of the mass and chemical composition of particles less than 2.5 µm in aerodynamic diameter (PM2.5), light extinction, and meteorology in the urban Baltimore-Washington corridor during July 1999 and July 2000 ...
