Research Project: Measuring Air Quality in the Chesapeake Bay Region at the Agriculture-Urban Interface

Location: Hydrology and Remote Sensing Laboratory

Project Number: 1245-12610-001-10
Project Type: Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 01, 2012
End Date: Sep 30, 2015

Objective:
Measure ambient concentrations of atmospheric components at the agriculture-urban interface of the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Results will be used to discern the fate and transport of agriculturally-related pollutants and their effects on air quality.

Approach:
Measure atmospheric components at the agriculture-urban interface at one location in Beltsville, Maryland. Samples will usually be collected weekly or bi-weekly throughout the year. Samples will include particulate matter and semi-volatile and volatile organic compounds.
