Project at a Glance
Title: Aerosol time of flight mass spectrometry (ATOFMS) as a real time monitor of individual aerosol particles in field studies.
Principal Investigator / Author(s): Prather, Kimberly A
Contractor: UC Riverside
Contract Number: 95-305
Topic Areas: Health Effects of Air Pollution, Monitoring
To develop transportable instruments which can be used to characterize the spatial and temporal variations of the size and chemical composition of individual airborne particles. Once developed and tested as part of this contract, these instruments will be used at various locations in the State of California to characterize aerosol sources and transformations as they occur in the atmosphere.
