SUNVEx Instrumentation

Proposed SUNVEx measurements mitigate the risk of not having data from one of the west coast megacities during AEROMMA (as that mission evolves and with the potential that the postponed project flight hours may be cut). Ground site measurements would also give an opportunity to field test the new VIA-VOCUS-LToF instrument with many ancillary measurements before AEROMMA flights. Mobile Doppler lidar measurements provide complementary dynamics data to improve model representations of urban meteorology and relationships between extreme heat, emissions and photochemistry.
