... A portion of his work involves understanding the quantum-level physical and chemical mechanisms of the process. He has also used this process to study a wide array of phenomena, including the origin and evolution of the solar system; the source and transformation of greenhouse gases in the troposphere; the chemistry of the stratosphere and mesosphere, especially the ozone cycle; the chemistry of the ancient martian atmosphere; the origin and evolution of oxygen and ozone and life in Earth's Precambrian; the history of seawater over millions of years; and changes in the oxidative capacity of the atmosphere.
