Looking on the Brighter Side: Lessons from the Field (Part 3)

I was thinking about just skipping this week’s blog post because I’ve been in the sourest mood this week. Many things have gone wrong and it seems that every day there’s been a new problem. As such, my first attempt to write this post became a whiny, complaining mess which in my opinion was not… Continue reading Looking on the Brighter Side: Lessons from the Field (Part 3)

Becoming MacGyver: Lessons from the Field (Part 2)

The field is tough. This whole blog post could probably be summarized by that one sentence. In fact, I might as well stop here. But I won’t. Because I’m mostly stress writing at this point. But anyway, if you haven’t done field work, take my word for it, while it can be a very rewarding… Continue reading Becoming MacGyver: Lessons from the Field (Part 2)

Plants and Their Role in the Atmosphere

I finally did it! Here is another science post discussing the role of plant emissions (specifically isoprene) have on our air quality and climate. Admittedly, this is a very brief summary, as isoprene chemistry is currently a hot research topic and there were simply too many avenues to discuss on a simple introductory post. However,… Continue reading Plants and Their Role in the Atmosphere

Ammonia Pollution: Validation of Space-Based Emission Profiles

This week, I present to you a "News and Views" type science article that I had to write for a class last quarter! Depending on the popularity of this post (as well as my own time constraints) I would like to start writing more of these types of blog posts, particularly for areas more closely related to… Continue reading Ammonia Pollution: Validation of Space-Based Emission Profiles
