Anthony Leroy Westerling with CNAP, a CAP/RISA team, co-authors publication titled, “Spatial and temporal patterns of wildfire burn severity and biomass burning-induced emissions in California.”
AC4 funded research uses unprecedented field measurements to gather data on real-world vehicular and non-vehicular volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions to characterize emission rates and oxidative aging of various types of organic pollutants and greenhouse gases in the Greater New York City Metropolitan Area.
New research illustrates a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from six North American cities because of a reduction in traffic and economic activities during COVID-19 lockdown.
The pandemic presented a unique opportunity to study the atmosphere’s response to widespread and sudden emission reductions, documented in a new publication in Environmental Research Letters.
A draft report titled “Urban Greenhouse Gas Emissions Observation and Monitoring Best Research Practices” seeks review comments.
