Harvey Jeffries has been a member of the Environmental Sciences and Engineering faculty since 1971. Dr. Jeffries is a gas-phase atmospheric chemist specializing in volatile organic compound photo- oxidation with oxides of nitrogen to produce ozone (ie, “smog”). In addition, he is a mathematical modeler, creating numerical simulation models of photochemistry that become components of large scale Eulerian models incorporating meteorological and emissions sub-models. Dr. Jeffries has been active in using these models to plan public policy for air pollution control. His work also includes research on the effectiveness of alternative fuels to reduce ozone and the atmospheric chemistry leading to global change.
