Biography and Research: 

Anthropogenic emissions and their chemical transformation during atmospheric transport drive critical issues surrounding air quality and climate change.  Professor Carlton conducts atmospheric modeling, as well as organizing and conducting field and laboratory studies to investigate these topics.  The ultimate goal of this research is to inform policymakers in order that society can develop effective strategies that protect human health, ecosystems, agricultural economies, and security.  Specific interests include:

  • formation of secondary organic aerosol through cloud processing and aerosol water chemistry
  • 3-dimensional photochemical modeling for air quality and climate with emphasis on atmospheric aqueous chemistry
  • formation of secondary organic aerosol through cloud processing
  • aerosol-cloud interactions
  • biogenic and anthropogenic influences on climate and air quality
  • atmospheric processing of pollution

Dr. Carlton was the scientific leader of the SOAS campaign, member of the ACCORD Science Committee at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, and member of the National Research Committee tasked with identifying priorities and strategic steps forward for atmospheric chemistry research over the coming decades.
