CEE team participates in CalNex 2010 study of LA air quality
The poor air quality of Los Angeles provides the setting for first-year graduate student Anthony Carrasquillo to study a polluted urban environment. Anthony, who works with Professor Jesse Kroll and postdoctoral associate Eben Cross on problems in atmospheric chemistry, will deploy a novel instrument to measure the composition of all organic compounds in the gas phase. This project is part of the CalNex 2010 campaign that has engaged more than 40 atmospheric science groups to compile a comprehensive data set that will improve our understanding of atmospheric chemical processes that affect human health and global climate change.
