NOAA, NASA, and academic partners welcomed reporters to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base last Thursday, August 3rd in celebration of an unprecedented scientific investigation into the nation’s air quality. The open house featured tours of the DC-8, Gulfstream-III, Gulfstream-V aircraft, their on-board scientific instrumentation, and conversations with scientists as well as NOAA and NASA leadership.

CPO Lapenta Intern Keelie Steiner and NOAA Chief Scientist Dr. Sarah Kapnick listen to CSL Director Dave Fahey introduce instruments onboard the DC-8.

Victoria Breeze, Program Manager for the Earth’s Radiation Budget (ERB) Program and Keelie Steiner, Lapenta Intern, attended on behalf of the Climate Program Office (CPO). CPO-supported scientists are taking measurements on board NASA’s DC-8 as well as at ground sites across New York and Connecticut as part of the summer campaign. The focus at Wright-Patterson was on the NOAA led AEROMMA (Atmospheric Emissions and Reactions Observed from Megacities to Marine Areas), which receives funding from CPO’s Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle and Climate (AC4) Program, and the NASA led STAQS (Synergistic TEMPO Air Quality Science) field campaigns.
