Dr. Huiting Mao's research interests include regional tropospheric chemistry and climate change, intercontinental transport of trace gases and aerosols, climate-air quality connections, biosphere-atmosphere exchange of trace gases, and radiative transfer processes. Her work on these topics has appeared in 50+ publications in high-impact journals.
She has published work on regional O3 and CO in the Northeast, biogenic and anthropogenic contributions to methanol and acetone in marine and terrestrial environments, continental outflow of O3 using measurement aboard the Smart Balloon platform, factors important to speciated mercury levels in the marine and terrestrial regions of eastern New England as well as on the global scale, causes for occurrence of atmospheric mercury depletion events in the springtime Arctic, and present and future climate and air quality. She has also been co-author on other high profile papers that covered topics such as discovering a large terrestrial source of methyl iodide, controls on the diurnal cycle of O3 and other trace gases in New England, and the distribution of hydrocarbons and halocarbons along coastal New England.
Much of this work has been supported by the NOAA-funded AIRMAP and Targeted Wind Sensing programs as well as EPA, NASA and NSF funded projects.

Graduate Research Topic
My research is focused on atmospheric mercury. My work is an instrumentally based investigation of mercury sources, sinks and transformations in the atmosphere.
