Operated by Scott Herndon, Aerodyne Research Inc.
Ground measurements during summer 2019 are based out of McCall. Instrumentation will be hosted at a remote property used seasonally for winter recreational activities. The focus at the ground site is to employ state-of-the-art collection techniques to speciate and quantify vapors and particulate matter associated with wild fire emissions and its subsequent atmospheric oxidation. These instruments typically have slow time resolution (≥ 15 minutes) which makes them inappropriate for the mobile payload. Both the NASA Langley Mobile Laboratory (LML) and the Aerodyne Mobile Laboratory (AML) will be parked and measuring nearby when not on sorties. Operating at the McCall "Activity Barn" site August 2019:
