The NOAA Chemical Sciences Division develops, characterizes, and deploys field-capable instrumentation for atmospheric measurements of trace chemical species. Interpretation of data generated by new and existing instruments is used to advance the understanding of sources, processes, and sinks of atmospheric constituents, with relevance to issues involving atmospheric chemistry and climate. Our research focuses on instrument design and testing, airborne field deployment, and scientific interpretation of the resulting data. Techniques used in our group include laser cavity ring-down spectroscopy, broadband incoherent cavity-enhanced absorption spectroscopy, high-resolution time of flight chemical ionization mass spectrometry, gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, and gas-phase chemiluminescence.
