Using Airborne and Ground-Based Field Observations to Improve Understanding of Atmospheric Ozone Production

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.

New Aerosol Study Uses FIREX-AQ Data to Link Visual Aerosol Properties to Wildfire Smoke Evolution 28 October 2022

New Aerosol Study Uses FIREX-AQ Data to Link Visual Aerosol Properties to Wildfire Smoke Evolution

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.
