A13E:
VOC Chemistry and OH Reactivity: Known Unknowns and Unknown Unknowns III Posters


Session ID#: 8720

Session Description:
The tropospheric reactions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particularly biogenic VOCs, play a fundamental role in governing air quality and climate, yet remain poorly understood. Multi-faceted research is being conducted to elucidate the processes involved in VOC oxidation and their reaction products. Recent studies have identified the key contributions of peroxy radicals, organic nitrates and oxygenated VOCs to ambient hydroxyl radical (OH) reactivity, which controls atmospheric lifetimes of most compounds, influencing aerosol and ozone formation.

More such strategic studies are needed to address the failure of models to simulate production of air quality and climate-relevant species, particularly at low-NOx and varied temporal and spatial scales. Recent technological advances show promise in producing the observational data, previously too sparse or time-limited, necessary to fully constrain the chemistry in these models and account for missing OH reactivity.

This session invites presentations highlighting best practice in combining laboratory experiments, in-situ measurements and modelling.
