Riverside. His research areas include kinetics and mechanisms of the gas phase of the atmospherically important reactions of organic compounds. Dr. Atkinson received a B.A. in natural sciences and a Ph.D. in physical chemistry from Cambridge University. He currently serves as a member of the California Air Resources Board's Reactivity Scientific Advisory Committee. He has also served as a member of the NRC committee on Tropospheric Ozone Formation and Measurement.
Nancy J. Brown is a senior scientist at the Ernest Orlando Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. She is also head of the Environmental Research Program within the Energy and Environment Division, and leader of the Combustion Research Group. Dr. Brown's research areas include combustion chemistry, chemical dynamics, modeling combustion processes, and model sensitivity and uncertainty in atmospheric chemistry. She received a B.S. from Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and an M.S. and a Ph.D. in chemical physics from the University of Maryland.
Jack G. Calvert is a senior scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. His research areas include atmospheric chemistry, photochemistry, reaction kinetics, and formation and decay mechanisms of reactive transients (molecules and free radicals). Dr. Calvert has served on many NRC committees and currently serves on the California Air Resources Board's Reactivity Scientific Advisory Committee. He received a B.S. and Ph.D. in chemistry from UCLA.
Fred C. Fehsenfeld is senior scientist and program leader for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Aeronomy Laboratory. His research areas include atmospheric measurement of ozone and precursors. Dr. Fehsenfeld received a B.A. from Rice University and a Ph.D. in physics from the University of Texas. He served as a member of the NRC Committee on Tropospheric Ozone Formation and Measurement and a member of the NRC Committee on Atmospheric Chemistry.
