An AC4-funded research study finds model bias related to aerosol concentrations compared to global aircraft field data, and corrects the bias using improved precipitation representation.
A new AC4-funded study on atmospheric ozone production uses field observations to investigate changes in ozone production on high ozone concentration days during the summer of 2018.
Using data from the FIREX-AQ field campaign, a new AC4-funded research study develops a comparison between aerosol concentration and the way aerosol particles scatter light in the atmosphere, offering new insights into wildfire smoke evolution.
A new AC4-funded publication utilizes FIREX-AQ observations to evaluate common modeling representations of wildfire smoke plumes and finds they can be improved by expanding the use of observations for heat flux and boundary layer height.
AC4-supported research uses controlled chamber experiments to study the atmospheric formation of secondary organic aerosols.
