PMEL’s Atmospheric Chemistry group will be in Utah from January 24 through February participating in the second year of the Utah Air Quality Study to determine what is causing high levels of ozone during winter in the oil and gas production fields in Utah.  PMEL’s role is to measure properties of atmospheric particles and snow, including chemical composition, to assess their role in ozone production.

To find out more information about this study please visit the Atmospheric Chemistry web site.
