Title: Affiliate Research Professor
Atmospheric chemistry and its application to urban, regional and global scale air quality problems are Dr. Stockwell's primary research interests. He has developed several widely used regional atmospheric chemistry models including the Regional Acid Deposition Model, version 2, (RADM2) for the US Environmental Protection Agency and the Mesoscale Meteorological Model, version 5, with Chemistry (MM5-CHEM) that is being used by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) for air quality forecasting. He has performed experimental and theoretical studies of aerosol formation and his research on sulfur dioxide oxidation is now the basis for studies of secondary sulfate aerosol formation and for the development of particulate matter control strategies. His research interests also include the atmospheric chemistry of biologically emitted volatile organic compounds, the application of sensitivity and uncertainty analysis to air quality models, the effects of turbulence on chemistry, the modeling of nitrate aerosol formation and field measurements of trace species and solar radiation flux. The application of science to public policy is another strong interest. Dr. Stockwell served as the Chief Scientist for Air Quality in the Office of Weather and Air Quality within the Office of Atmospheric Research of NOAA. At NOAA he worked on science policy issues associated with the development of a nationwide program of air quality forecasting. Dr. Stockwell's principal appointment is associate professor, Department of Chemistry at Howard University. He is also on the faculty of Howard University's Program of Atmospheric Science and its NOAA Center for Atmospheric Science.
