1997 Southern California Ozone Study - NARSTO

Mira Loma Description and Site Map


The Mira Loma temporary monitoring site located at a Union Pacific Railroad Company's new car distribution facility, where autos are moved from rail cars to transporter trucks for delivery to dealers throughout the region. The instrument trailer location is at the downwind (east) edge of a parking lot of several hundred acres, well isolated from most on-site activities. To the west, across Etiwanda Avenue, lies the Chino dairy district, which produces much of the fresh milk consumed in Southern California. The site instrumentation focused on the in-situ formation of nitrate aerosols and their phase-dependent relationships with precursor concentrations, using real-time particle counts (CNC), size distributions (OPC), ammonia (FTIR) and nitric acid (NOy, quasi-real-time nitrate (filter revaporization) and single-particle aerosol (ATOFMS), four-hour aerosol chemistry (filters), and 24-hour size-species resolved organic and inorganic aerosol (MOUDI).
