PMEL Participates in Collaborative Utah Air Pollution Study

February 07, 2012

PMEL’s Atmospheric Chemistry group is currently taking part study to try and understand why ozone levels occasionally soar above health-based standards in the winter in rural Utah.  PMEL’s role is to measure properties of atmospheric particles and snow, including chemical composition, to assess their role in ozone production.

Other participants include NOAA’s Earth Systems Research Laboratory, the EPA, Utah Department of Environmental Quality, Utah State University and others.
