Description
Atmospheric particulate matter reduces visibility, adversely affects human health and impacts Earth’s climate. Recent laboratory research has identified NH3 as a potentially important reactive species in the formation and aging of SOA, a significant but not-well-quantified class of aerosol particles. The goal of this proposal is to answer the questions: How does NH3 affect aerosol mass loadings and optical properties on a global scale? And, what impact do these effects have on air quality and climate? This will be accomplished by incorporating NH3-related SOA chemistry, currently being investigated by collaborators at the University of California, Irvine (UCI) i...
