Critical Air Quality Research in Fairbanks, Alaska

In winter 2022, about fifty scientists from the United States and Europe completed a seven-week atmospheric chemistry study of Fairbanks, Alaska–the state’s second-largest city. 

The study, called the Alaskan Layered Pollution and Chemical Analysis (ALPACA) project, investigated the chemistry of Fairbanks’s air pollution–especially how the pollution behaves in the cold and dark.
