This fact sheet summarizes NOAA’s efforts to improve the understanding of the impact of aerosols on weather, air quality and climate.
Throughout August CPO programs have hosted, and will host, Q&A sessions with interested applicants. These sessions are available online to register or view recordings.
Researchers funded by AC4 sample wildfire smoke in the Western US and characterized sources of atmospheric nitrous acid.
Researchers supported by AC4 conduct observations over 9 months to examine pollution sources that lead to secondary organic aerosol production in Atlanta.
This new AC4-supported study produces a detailed comparative analysis of oxidation reactions that break down certain molecules into secondary organic aerosols, which impact air quality, climate, and human health.
