Physics Colloquium: Inverse Observational Constraints on Methane Abundances
Inverse Observational Constraints on Methane Abundances
Dr. Lee Murray
Assistant Professor of Earth and Environmental Sciences
Assistant Professor of Physics and Astronomy
University of Rochester
Methane is the second largest anthropogenic greenhouse gas and a precursor for surface air pollution. Yet the factors driving methane growth in the atmosphere remain elusive. This talk presents two projects aimed at improving understanding of factors driving changes in methane abundances through inverse modeling of atmospheric observations.
Lee Murray received his B.S. and Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering at Harvard. He performed postdoctoral research jointly at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies and the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University. He returned home to WNY to join the faculty at the University of Rochester. His research focuses on numerical methods to understand the coupling of atmospheric climate and composition.
Beginners, undergraduates, graduates, and experts. Those with interest in the topic.
