O. Russell Bullock, Jr.

My expertise is the development and application of numerical models to simulate physical meteorology and the emission, transport, transformation and deposition of various air pollutants.  Until 2010, my work was focused on atmospheric mercury deposition and its effects on aquatic ecosystems.  Since 2010, my efforts have been towards the development of methods to estimate local and regional effects of future climate change.  I have been directly involved with the development of a number of Agency regulatory actions by assessing the potential impacts of proposed controls on air pollutant emissions.
