WhatThe Boulder Atmospheric Observatory (BAO) 2008 project is a short-term informal, collaborative study linking air quality and climate goals in an urban area in the proximity of complex terrain. This project temporarily enhances NOAA Carbon Cycle long-term measurements with an additional suite of anthropogenic pollution measurements. This study overlaps with test flights of remote sensing instrumentation on the NOAA Twin Otter in the Colorado Front Range region, and coordinates with NCAR for BEACHON - Southern Rocky Mountains Summer 2008 Study.
