Viral Shah’s GRL paper “Widespread Pollution from Secondary Sources of Organic Aerosols during Winter in the Northeastern United States” was highlighted in Science as an Editor’s choice.
Viral Shah’s paper on “Widespread Pollution From Secondary Sources of Organic Aerosols During Winter in the Northeastern United States” is published in GRL. We made aircraft‐based observations of organic aerosols over the NE US during winter and observed that a majority of organic aerosols consist of secondary organic aerosols from gases emitted from pollution sources.

Our paper on “Using CALIOP to constrain blowing snow emissions of sea salt aerosols over Arctic and Antarctic sea ice” by Huang, J., Jaeglé, L., and Shah, V. is now published in Atmos. Chem. Phys., 18, 16253-16269 (https://doi.org/10.5194/acp-18-16253-2018)
Jiayue Huang successfully defended her Ph.D. thesis entitled “Sea ice sources of sea salt aerosols in polar regions” on November 9, 2018!
The AGU blog GeoSpace highlights the work of Ben Lee on unexpectedly high levels of reactive bromine-containing chemicals in plumes emitted by some coal-fired power plants. Check it out here: https://blogs.agu.org/geospace/2018/10/26/study-finds-unexpected-levels-of-bromine-in-power-plant-exhaust/
Our paper “Nitrogen oxides emissions, chemistry, deposition, and export over the Northeast United States during the WINTER aircraft campaign” is published in the Journal of Geophysical Research.
UW distributed a press release and video on our PNAS paper.
Our paper “Chemical Feedbacks weaken the wintertime response of particulate sulfate and nitrate to emissions reductions over the eastern United States” by Viral Shah, Lyatt Jaeglé, and co-authors was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences!
Congrats to Viral Shah on defending his PhD thesis “Sources, Chemistry, and transport of urban aerosols and oxidized mercury: An analysis combining aircraft and surface observations with a chemical transport model”. Viral will be doing a postdoc at Harvard with Prof. Daniel Jacob.
