Atmospheric Chemistry Lab

The Atmospheric Chemistry Laboratory contains gas chromatographs, selective chemical, electrical, and optical detectors, and a mass spectrometer for measuring a wide variety of trace gases including halocarbons, hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, sulfur gases, and ozone in urban and remote atmospheres.

The laboratory includes a powerful computational capability for running three-dimensional global chemical transport models, and mesoscale coupled convection and chemistry models, which are used to interpret atmospheric observations using forward and inverse modelling techniques.
