NOAA Scientists Contribute to 2014 Ozone Depletion Assessment

John Daniel and Stephen Montzka

We talked with Dr. John Daniel, Research Physicist with NOAA Research’s Earth System Research Laboratory (ESRL) Chemical Sciences Division, and Steve Montzka, Atmospheric Scientist with ESRL’s Global Monitoring Division, about the World Meteorological Organization and the United Nations Environment Programme Scientific Assessment of Ozone Depletion: 2014 and what inspired them to pursue a career in science. Daniel and Montzka played vital roles in the development of the 2014 ozone depletion assessment, which is conducted every four years and provides the most recent information on the state of ozone depletion to policy makers, researchers, and the public worldwide.

NOAA, partners find 50-year decline in some Los Angeles vehicle-related pollutants

Scientists find steady reduction in one type of air pollutant, although region still suffers bad air days

In California’s Los Angeles Basin, levels of some vehicle-related air pollutants have decreased by about 98 percent since the 1960s, even as area residents now burn three times as much gasoline and diesel fuel.

NOAA, partners find increase in airborne ethanol

Changes in the composition of transportation fuels are showing up in the atmosphere

Ethanol, now used commonly in U.S. transportation fuels, is turning up in urban air at more than six times the levels measured a decade ago, according to a new study by a team of NOAA researchers and colleagues.

NOAA, partners kick off multi-state study of how thunderstorms affect upper atmosphere

NOAA, partners kick off multi-state study of how thunderstorms affect upper atmosphere

Scientists will explore role of storms in forming ozone chemicals that affect weather, climate

Today marks the beginning of a large-scale, comprehensive field project to measure how thunderstorms transport, produce and process chemicals that form ozone, a greenhouse gas that affects Earth's climate, air quality and weather patterns.
