Instruments

We are bringing to SHARP (a) an Aerodyne High-Resolution Time-of-Flight Aerosol Mass Spectrometer (HR-ToF-AMS) to measure composition and size of non-refractory species in submicron aerosols (NR-PM1) in real-time, with a time resolution of 2.5 min. (b) a Potential Aerosol Mass (PAM) chamber that exposes ambient air to high concentrations of oxidants, and which will be alternated every 5 min. in front of the AMS; and © a TSI Scanning Mobility Particle Sizer to measure particle number distributions in the range 20-700 nm. Our main objective is to further develop the coupling of the PAM and AMS and to investigate the potential SOA mass in the Houston area and its composition, and compare to measurements of VOCs.
