Mark Jacobson develops and applies computer models for studying atmospheric pollution and climate problems. Such problems include urban and regional air pollution, acid deposition, stratospheric ozone reduction, and global warming. Jacobson has developed and applied numerical algorithms that simulate gas, aerosol, cloud microphysical, radiative, and land/ocean-surface processes. He has also developed an air-pollution-weather-climate model that he has applied to study scientific problems from the freeway scale to the global scale.
