Understanding atmospheric chemical transformation requires sensitive and accurate instrumentation for the measurement of trace species. Recent developments in spectroscopy using optical cavities has enabled new measurements of both trace gases and aerosol that have provided new scientific insights. The recent emphasis of this research program has been in the application of cavity enhanced methods to the measurement of trace gases, such as nitrogen oxides that occur in the nighttime atmosphere, and aerosol optical properties. Deployment of such instruments on aircraft, ships, and at ground sites will be a continuing focus, with the possibility of laboratory studies in support of these measurements.
