Aircraft measurements of aerosol optical properties during the MONEX program
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1979)
Understanding the role of formic acid in fine and coarse particle mode
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2020-07-21)
Formic acid partitioning was investigated at two sites in the southeast U.S., Yorkville, GA and Jefferson Street (JST). Previous studies in the southeast have shown that observed formic acid partitioning to fine particles ...
The Direct Influence of Aerosols on UV Irradiance and the Development of a Synthetic Current UV Index
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-07-11)
The extinction of solar radiation by atmospheric aerosols influences the Ultraviolet (UV) flux at the surface, which in turn has implications on both human and environmental health. In this study we present measurements ...
Influence of biomass burning aerosol on land-atmosphere interactions over Amazonia
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2005-07-18)
The impacts of biomass burning smoke on local rainfall and the structure of the atmospheric boundary layer have been actively studied in recent years. However, whether the large-scale biomass burning in the later dry season ...
Reactions of Bromide Ions with Atmospheric Trace Gases and Aerosols
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006-01-13)
I investigated the utility of Br- as a chemical ionization mass spectrometry (CIMS) reagent ion for the detection and measurement of both atmospheric trace gases and aerosol species. The primary goals of this study are to ...
Representing droplet size distribution and cloud processes in aerosol-cloud-climate interaction studies
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-05-04)
The indirect effect of aerosols expresses how changes in aerosols would influence clouds and cause impacts on Earth's climate and hydrological cycle. The current assessment of the interactions between aerosols and clouds ...
Real-time measurement of on-road fine particulate matter in Atlanta
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-04-01)
Particulate matter is increasingly linked to health effects not only for what was previously thought to be just a respiratory problem, but also for the cardiovascular system. Literature not only supports that high particulate ...
A study of aerosol interactions in aircraft wake and background atmosphere
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1996-12)
Development of an atmospheric aerosol model for studies of global budgets and effects of airborne particulate material
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1986-08)
Quantifying compositional impacts of ambient aerosol on cloud formation
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-11-14)
It has been historically assumed that most of the uncertainty associated with the aerosol indirect effect on climate can be attributed to the unpredictability of updrafts. We assess the sensitivity of cloud droplet number ...
