Coordinating Activities

New York City metropolitan Measurements of Emissions and TransformationS (NYC-METS)

Researchers from Yale University and Aerodyne Research Inc. plan to study emissions and oxidative aging of non-traditional gas-phase organic compounds in the greater New York City metropolitan area. Intensive measurements will be conducted during winter and summer 2021, to coordinate with AEROMMA flights, from an elevated ground site in Upper Manhattan, NY and a downwind ground site in Guilford, CT.

Long Island Sound Tropospheric Ozone Study (LISTOS)

The Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management (NESCAUM) study continues in New York 2020/2021 to investigate the evolving nature of ozone formation and transport in the NYC region and downwind. Data collection involves satellite, aircraft, balloon (ozone sondes), marine, and ground-based instruments.


Researchers from York University and Toronto groups are planning intensive measurements in Toronto, Canada in summer 2021. For more information contact Cora Young.

Greater New York Oxidant, Tropospheric Halogens, and Aerosol Measurements and Modeling (GOTHAMM)

The National Science Foundation (NSF) / National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) sponsored field study planned for Summer 2021 will focus on the biogeochemical interactions in urban, rural, and marine regions. Data will be collected from the NCAR/NSF C-130 research aircraft.

Tracking Aerosol Convection Interactions Experiment (TRACER)

The Department of Energy ARM (Atmospheric Radiation Measurement) field campaign planned for April 2021 through April 2022 aims to learn more about cloud and aerosol interactions in the deep convection over the Houston area. Data will be collected with the first ARM Mobile Facility (AMF1), the second generation C-band ARM Scanning Precipitation Radar (CSAPR2), and a small satellite site with radiosonde and aerosol measurements.
