Brian Davison

General interests

Brian has been working in the ES Dept at Lancaster over the last 10 years and has considerable experience in VOC sampling and analysis. His particular expertise lies with sulphur species such as DMS and MSA in the marine environment. In recent years his attention has focused on particle formation and occurrence in the coastal atmosphere, particularly with respect to the involvement of organic compounds through either reaction or condensation.
