Scott Herndon

Aerodyne Research

Principal Scientist

Dr. Herndon is a physical chemist and center director in the Center for Atmospheric and Environmental Chemistry at Aerodyne Research, Inc. Since joining Aerodyne in 1999, his research interests have focused on the development and utilization of laboratory and field trace gas and fine particle instrumentation, together with modeling studies, to characterize and elucidate atmospheric processes relevant to stratospheric ozone depletion, urban and regional air quality and climate change. He has led over 50 field measurement campaigns to characterize and quantify air pollutant emission sources and map ambient pollution concentrations using suites of advanced, real-time spectroscopic and mass spectrometric instrumentation deployed on the Aerodyne Mobile Laboratory and on a range of research aircraft and ships.

    Environmental Defense Fund | Is Hydrogen Leakage Undercutting its Climate Benefits?

    Hydrogen is increasingly looked to as a potential clean energy source to replace fossil fuels. But hydrogen emissions could undermine its climate benefits if not properly measured. Scientists at the Environmental Defense Fund – a global leader and innovator in pollution detection – and Aerodyne Research – a global leader in development of high precision instruments – will discuss how we can deploy faster, more precise detection tools in order to quantify hydrogen emissions and minimize its impact on the climate.
