Two research opportunities at the Environmental Protection Agency, North Carolina, USA

Two research opportunities are available at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Office of Research and Development (ORD), located in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.

The objective of this project is to integrate the U.S. version of the Global Change Assessment Model (GCAM-USA) into the GLIMPSE decision support system, facilitating its use for long-term air quality and climate planning. GLIMPSE will provide Agency- and state-level analysts with levers for manipulating GCAM-USA inputs to simulate the application of air pollutant emission controls, as well as energy efficiency and renewable energy measures. GLIMPSE will provide visualization tools for exploring model outputs, including emissions and projected impacts, and its design will support an iterative and interactive management strategy exploration process.

We are seeking one participant for a research project on using GCAM-USA for air quality management applications.

And we are seeking one participant to improve the Java-based GLIMPSE application, which is a graphical user interface for creating and managing GCAM-USA input files and analyzing outputs.

Applications must be submitted through the links provided above.

Participants will be mentored by Chris Nolte and Dan Loughlin in EPA’s Center for Environmental Measurement and Modeling.
