Photoactive Roadways: Laboratory, Field and Modeling insight on the impact of photocatalytic paving materials on urban tropospheric chemistry
Photoactive roadways have been suggested as a mitigation method to improve air quality in urban areas. However, difficulties translating laboratory results to real world conditions has complicated a wider adoption of this ...
USING NASA EARTH OBSERVING SATELLITES WITH THE AIRPACT AIR QUALITY FORECAST SYSTEM
The Air Indicator Report for Public Awareness and Community Tracking (AIRPACT) air quality model simulates EPA criteria pollutants and their precursors, providing quantitative descriptions of regional air quality in the ...
Chemical Characterization of Biogenic Secondary Organic Aerosol Generated from the Oxidation of Plant and Leaf Litter Emissions
Atmospheric aerosol impact climate by scattering and absorbing radiation and contributing to cloud formation processes. One of the largest uncertainties in climate change predictions is due to limitations in our understanding ...
Measuring Diesel Exhaust Gas Phase Organics with a Thermal Desorption Proton Transfer Reaction Mass Spectrometer
Photochemical processing of organic compounds from vehicle emissions forms ozone and increases organic particulate matter concentrations through the formation of secondary organic aerosol (SOA), which is a poorly understood, ...
Air Quality Impacts of Atmospheric Particles & Trace Gases: Field Studies in Diverse Environments
Air pollution impacts occur at all scales, meaning that policies and air quality management practices must be implemented and coordinated at the local, regional, national, and global scales. This dissertation is part of a ...
Continuous in-situ measurements of HCHO and other VOCs by PTR-MS in nine homes in eastern WA
Exposure of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can have negative impacts on human health but the range of indoor levels, along with variations and relationship with influencing factors are poorly understood. In this ...
