4-D Atmospheric Sensing and Simulation

Brookhaven Lab is developing theory and novel approaches for measuring and monitoring atmospheric components through space and time. The goal is to reduce uncertainty in climate models used to guide decision-making and policies relevant to clean energy, human health and well-being, and national security.
