Narrative:
Russell’s research involves the development and evaluation of high-time resolution methods for gas phase criteria pollutants with emphasis currently placed on methods for ozone and "true' nitrogen dioxide. His other research areas include: high-time resolution determination and speciation of fine particulate matter and its gaseous precursors; and determination of total reactive oxides of nitrogen and its speciated components in support of the proposed NOx/SOx secondary standard.
