Global-to-urban models for minimizing air quality and climate impacts of freight choice
Sponsor: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
Co-Investigators: Y. Ouyang, C. Barkan (CEE, U of Illinois), B. Lee (Urban Planning, U of Illinois), S. Smith (U of Maryland)
Illinois student: Liang Liu
Goal: Estimate emission scenarios for U.S. truck + rail system, considering future uncertainty, infrastructure, and urban form.

Isolating Weakly and Strongly-Absorbing Classes of Carbonaceous Aerosol:Optical Properties, Abundance and Life Cycle
Sponsor: U.S. Department of Energy
Co-Investigators: M. J. Rood (CEE, Illinois); N. Riemer (Atmospheric Science, Illinois)
Illinois Students: Beni Brem (graduated), Rishabh Shah, Francisco Mena Gonzalez Goals: Measure optical properties of organic carbon particles, plain and mixed with other stuff, at high relative humidity and cloud condensation nuclei. Match observations with a particle-resolved model.

Wet Deposition of Carbonaceous Aerosols
Sponsor: Illinois State Water Survey discretionary funding; EPA STAR Fellowship
Co-Investigators: C. Lehmann (ISWS)
Illinois Students: Alexander Torres Negron
Goals: Develop methods for systematically measuring carbonaceous aerosol wet deposition that can be used in national deposition networks. Measure and statistically analyze long time series.

Characterization Of Emissions From Small, Variable Solid Fuel Combustion Sources For Determining Global Emissions And Climate Impact
Sponsor: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
Co-Investigators: R. Edwards (Public Health, UC Irvine); K. R. Smith (Public Health, UC Berkeley)
Illinois Students: Cheryl Weyant, Ryan Thompson
Goal: Provide emission rates for in-use (real) residential and industrial solid-fuel burning in locations near the Himalayas.


Bridging the last few kilometers: Accounting for subgrid mixing and spatial gradients in global aerosol models
Sponsor: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Co-Investigators: N. Riemer (Atmospheric Sciences, Illinois), S. Bauer (Goddard Institute for Space Studies)
Illinois student: Laura Fierce
Goal: Parameterize processes that occur on scales smaller than a global model grid box
A Chemical History of Anthropogenic Input to the Atmosphere Throughout the Industrial Era
Sponsor: National Science Foundation
Co-Investigators: M. Flanner (Atmospheric Sciences, U of Michigan), T. Kirchstetter (CEE, UC Berkeley)
Illinois students: Tianye Sun, Liang Liu
Goal: Provide a history of anthropogenic emissions to the atmosphere from 1850-2000, constrained by as many measurements as we can find.

Emission Characterization and Technology Transitions for Black-Carbon-Rich Sources
Sponsor: Clean Air Task Force
Illinois student: Cheryl Weyant, Ekbordin Winijkul
Goal: Fill in data gaps for uncharacterized emission sources like brick kilns. Estimate plausible transitions to cleaner technology.
