A Brit, his computer, & prepping for a greenhouse whodunnit.

Matt Rigby is a Research Scientist in the Center for Global Change Science. An atmospheric chemist by training, his particular interest is in determining the sources and sinks of greenhouse gases. To determine their sources and sinks, Rigby uses measurements of the concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere together with computer models (a lot like the models used to produce weather forecasts) to work backwards from where a gas is observed to where it must have come from. Doing this he can then seek to work out what the sources are or what the destruction rates for the various gases are.
