Atmospheric Particulate Matter
Brian Majestic, Associate Professor
This research investigates transformations of transition metals in atmospheric systems. Presently, we are studying oxidation-state changes and speciation changes of iron in cloud water. Our group participates in field studies in and around Denver, in the American Southwest and in China. Tools used in the lab include inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) and long-pathlength UV-vis spectrophotometry.
