Platform: NOAA-CHEM Twin Otter Instruments
Chemiluminescence: NO, NO2, O3
Three sample flows, each employing the chemiluminescent reaction: NO + O3 → NO2* + O2
- NOx emissions and their relation to fuel type, fire characteristics, time of day (day vs. night), and meteorology.
- Subsequent chemical evolution, especially the production of O3 and the concomitant evolution of NOx (NOx → PAN), and also nighttime production of NO3.
