Atmospheric Science Research at PNNL: Overview

The research mission of the Atmospheric Science and Global Change Division (ASGCD) within the Fundamental & Computational Sciences Directorate at PNNL has diverse objectives: to understand and mitigate the effects of energy production and usage on the atmospheric environment; to understand the transport, dispersion, and chemical transformation of airborne contaminants; and how those factors may affect regional and global earth systems. In supporting this mission, our staff of more than 80 scientists conduct basic and applied research in: climate physics, atmospheric chemistry, transport and diffusion, regional climate modeling, meteorology, and integrated assessment and policy analysis. To advance our understanding of integrated Earth systems on regional and global scales, PNNL scientists are combining an extensive world-wide field observational system with laboratory research and modeling. From the role of clouds and aerosol processes in climate change, to the effect of energy technology choices on greenhouse gas emissions, our researchers will continue to be leaders in the Atmospheric Sciences.
