Aerosol Properties & Processes

The Aerosol Properties & Processes research program studies processes important to climate, air quality, and precipitation. Researchers measure the physical, chemical, and optical properties of aerosol particles in the field and laboratory to better understand the sources, sinks, and radiative properties of these particles. They utilize advanced data analysis and models to understand the implications of these measurements for the atmosphere.
