TALK

The impacts of mixing anthropogenic and natural emissions on air quality and climate change

Welcome to the fifth GAC lunch seminar for 2022, this time with a talk from Cheng Wu, Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Chemistry & Molecular Biology.

Secondary organic aerosol (SOA), formed from the oxidation of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) by ozone (O3), hydroxyl radicals (OH), or nitrate radicals (NO3), has important impacts on climate and human health. While O3 and OH-initiated oxidation dominates during the daytime, NO3, generated at night by the reaction of NO2 with O3, is the major nocturnal oxidant. The reactions of NO3 with biogenic VOCs, in particular, couple anthropogenic NOx emissions with natural VOC emissions, and therefore are crucial to our understanding of the impacts of anthropogenic pollution on air quality and climate change. In this talk, I will present my recent chamber studies as well as field observations of SOA from NO3-initiated oxidation of biogenic VOCs with a focus on their molecular composition and volatility.
