Abstract:

LONG TERM GOALS. The long term goal of this grant is to produce high-quality Ph.D.s who are capable of developing and implementing solutions to complex scientific and technical issues. Although this grant has supported graduate training in the broad disciplines of environmental photochemistry and optics, projects within the research group range from fundamental studies of the photophysics and photochemistry of well-characterized compounds to the detection of free radicals in biological and environmental systems, to the development of new approaches in analytical science, to field studies of biogeochemical processes. Students are thus subjected to a broad range of techniques, approaches and ideas cutting across a variety of disciplines. This type of training will hopefully produce a better equipped Ph.D. - one who is better able to confront complex scientific problems through inventive and flexible approaches.
