    The general fields of spectroscopy and aeronomy, emphasizing the measurements of minor constituents and aerosols in planetary atmospheres such as nitric oxide and ozone and the physical and chemical phenomena which determine their densities and temporal variations.

    I am a member of the POAM (Polar Ozone and Aerosol Measurement) II science team.  The POAM II instrument was developed by the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) to measure the vertical distribution of atmospheric ozone, water vapor, nitrogen dioxide, aerosol extinction, and temperature. POAM II measures solar extinction in nine narrow band channels, covering the spectral range from approximately 350 to 1060 nm.
