A11O:
Air Quality Research: From Emissions to Impact I


Session ID#: 10955

Session Description:
Degraded air quality is a serious health and environmental concern and is caused by direct emissions as well as secondary products formed in the atmosphere. Emission sources are often highly diverse, and their air quality impacts are a complex function of transport, mixing, and photochemical processes.This session invites studies of the photochemical evolution of multiple local sources of pollution and their impacts on air quality and photochemical oxidant formation. The session focuses on the interactions and impacts of varied emissions sources, including mixing urban pollution with emissions from oil and gas extraction activities or agricultural sources, the interaction of anthropogenic and natural emissions, and combinations of biogenic or wildfire emissions with anthropogenic emissions. We invite field campaign data analysis and modeling studies that assess these interactions and their relevance to air quality.
