Keutsch Group

ANNOUNCEMENTS: Our research article "Predicting Real Refractive Index of Organic Aerosols From Elemental Composition" has been published in Geophysical Research Letters in June 2023!

We are a team of interdisciplinary atmospheric scientists and engineers. Our research efforts aim to understand the effects of natural and anthropogenic emissions on climate and human health and on aerosol-biosphere-climate interactions. Using innovative experimental design and instrument development, we combine laboratory studies, observations, and modeling to obtain a holistic view of chemistry-climate interactions in local and global contexts. 

Field Work

High altitude aircraft (WB-57) in Fairbanks, AK, carrying a payload designated to measuring stratospheric aerosols.

Laboratory Experiments

Laser-induced fluorescence used in our lab to measure ppt concentrations of formaldehyde.


Ozone depletion due to the La Soufrière eruption in 2021 modeled using SOCOL-AER.
