Site Description

Naval Air Weapons Center (NAWC), Baker Monitoring Site

The Baker monitoring site is located on the NAWC, 9-10 miles east of highway 14, 8-10 miles west of the dry China Lake and 8-10 miles north of the town of Ridgecrest, California.  The site is located in flat terrain with no obstructions for several hundred meters in all directions.  A monitoring shelter with power, telephone, and security is readily available at the monitoring site.  The NAWC, according to Mr. Finlinson, would be willing to accommodate the additional equipment, if requested by the CRPAQS, to support the study.  The site currently has a instrumented 10-meter meteorological tower, a TEOM, and a nephelometer.  

The site has been used over numerous years during various air quality monitoring programs with an excellent historical data base.  The site would provide data that could provide intercomparisons between the instruments currently present at the site and the study’s samplers.
