Abstract:

Since 2004 my group at the University of Washington has operated the Mt. Bachelor Observatory at 2.8 km on the summit of a dormant volcano in central Oregon. The focus of our research is to understand the sources of O3, Hg, and particulate matter in the background atmosphere along the west coast of the U.S. This site is unique in regularly sampling free tropospheric air. In this talk, I will present some of our most important findings relevant to sources of O3 and Hg in the background atmosphere and some of our recent work on wildfire emissions. More information on the Mt. Bachelor Observatory including real-time data.
