News & Events for 02/2021

Worldwide efforts to contain spreading of the COVID-19 pandemic have reduced emissions from surface traffic by about 15% on average over the year 2020. Air-traffic (and emissions) went down by 40% on average.

As previously announced, we currently are making plans to hold the 2021 NDACC Steering Committee meeting in College Park, MD, the week of 13–17 September 2021. With the ongoing restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, it remains unclear if we will be able to have a face-to-face meeting this year.

Congratulations to Dr. Ryan Stauffer for his appointment to a Civil Service position in the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center Atmospheric Chemistry and Dynamics Laboratory within the Earth Sciences Division! This appointment is effective 1 March 2021.
