The use of satellite earth observations and earth system models provides an excellent tool to investigate atmosphere-biosphere-climate interactions and to project how atmospheric composition, ecosystems and climate may change in the future. In this seminar, I will present results from a series of projects that deal with the impact of biomass burning and oil and natural gas operations, and the application of rock weathering for climate change mitigation. These projects use the Community Earth System Model (CESM) and/or a variety of satellite observations from NASA . In addition, I will share my experience of establishing the first Ozone Garden in the UK. This Ozone Garden was established in June 2016 at the Sheffield Botanical Gardens, with the goals of studying the effect of local air pollution on plants and raising public awareness on the importance of air quality.
