Lessons Learned About Organic Aerosol Formation in the Southeast U.S. Using Observations and Modeling

Pye, H. Lessons Learned About Organic Aerosol Formation in the Southeast U.S. Using Observations and Modeling. NCSU University Global Partnership Network on Air Quality, Climate & Health, Raleigh, NC, April 08, 2016.

Description:

Isoprene emitted by vegetation is an important precursor of secondary organic aerosol (SOA). In this work, modeling of isoprene SOA via heterogeneous uptake is explored and compared to observations from the Southern Oxidant and Aerosol Study (SOAS).

Purpose/Objective:

The National Exposure Research Laboratory (NERL) Computational Exposure Division (CED) develops and evaluates data, decision-support tools, and models to be applied to media-specific or receptor-specific problem areas. CED uses modeling-based approaches to characterize exposures, evaluate fate and transport, and support environmental diagnostics/forensics with input from multiple data sources. It also develops media- and receptor-specific models, process models, and decision support tools for use both within and outside of EPA.
