    in 2003 He is a member of our Physics Education Research and Development Group one of the largest in the world Members of the N C A T Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics Group pictured above are working with researchers from 14 other institutions this winter to investigate the little known dynamics of wintertime air pollution The project is the Wintertime INvestigation of Transport Emissions and Reactivity WINTER campaign in the Mid Atlantic Region It will provide detailed aircraft based measurements to explore how chemical processes in the atmosphere vary by season Pollution occurs throughout the year but the chemistry that determines the impact of pollution in the winter has been largely unexplored Most research has focused on warmer seasons In winter for example short lived pollutants like sulfur dioxide dissipate more slowly so they affect wider areas downwind from the source of the pollution Sulfur dioxide can cause respiratory problems and can turn into acid rain Levels of oxidant pollution such as ozone are smaller in the winter due to decreased sunlight and emissions from plants said Dr Marc Fiddler an A T research chemist working on the project These conditions produce a different and much more uncertain picture of what happens to sulfur dioxide in the winter The uncertainties cover a broad range of issues How sensitive are chemical processes in the atmosphere to changes in temperature water content acidity and particle size Fiddler said In addition to Fiddler the A T team includes Jaime Green a doctoral student in energy and environmental systems and Steven G Blanco Garcia an undergraduate physics major They are part of the Atmospheric Physics and Chemistry Research group led by Dr Solomon Bililign professor of physics For six weeks this winter much of their work is being conducted in a C 130 research aircraft operated by the National Science Foundation and National Center for Atmospheric Research Performing measurements on a plane is very different from the laboratory Fiddler said You have to worry about all sorts of things you don t normally care about in the lab weight of the instrument power consumption size fast sampling due to the aircraft s speed integration into the aircraft and intense vibrations It really presents its own set of measurement challenges The study is funded by the National Science Foundation with significant in kind support from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration s Earth System Research Laboratory The University of Washington is the lead institution other principal investigators are from the NOAA Earth System Research Lab Georgia Tech the University of California at Berkeley and the University of Colorado at Boulder Collaborators include N C A T Howard
