Project Title & Description
Aerosol Optical Properties and Biogenic SOA
This project will characterize the optical properties of anthropogenically-influenced biogenic secondary organic aerosol and parameters critical for climate modeling. Measurements will be made at the Southern Oxidant and Aerosol Study (SOAS) campaign in Centerville, AL in summer 2013 and a second field campaign at the Duke Forest site in summer 2014. Measurements include aerosol hygroscopicity, light absorption and scattering, organic nitrates, water soluble organic carbon, and the ionic species of the aerosol.
