Energy and Environment - Uintah Basin Winter Ozone Study (E&E UBWOS)
15 January - 13 February 2014
Horsepool, UT 40.14370°N, 109.46718°W
Various ground-based instruments.
Investigators in this project include researchers from NOAA/ESRL Chemical Sciences Division, Global Monitoring Division, Physical Sciences Division, NOAA Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory, and the University of Colorado.
This follow-up project is designed to study the causes of high wintertime ozone observed in the Uintah Basin. Specifically, it will examine these science questions:
- Sources of VOCs, NOx, particles
- Ozone formation chemistry in areas of enhanced UV radiation from snow cover
- Unique radical sources: HONO, CH2O, ClNO2
- The role of vertical structure
