Atmospheric Emissions and Reactions Observed from Megacities to Marine Areas (AEROMMA) is a comprehensive study led by NOAA's Chemical Sciences Laboratory investigating anthropogenic and marine emissions that alter tropospheric composition and impact air quality and climate over North America. The AEROMMA campaign brings together airborne, ground, and satellite observing systems, and state-of-the-art air quality and climate models, to investigate emerging research needs in urban air quality, atmospheric interactions at the marine-urban interface, marine emissions, satellite-based observations of atmospheric composition, and climate change.
AEROMMA will expand upon new findings to assess their impacts on air quality and climate and improve our understanding of air pollution in a changing environment. Learn More
AEROMMA will investigate urban and marine emissions and evaluate new technology for space-based observation of atmospheric composition. Learn More
The largest U.S. cities are on coasts, which allows for assessments of the interactions between megacity and marine environments. Learn More
The AEROMMA field campaign includes research flights and ground sites targeting U.S. megacities on the west and east coasts. Learn More
