Characterization of the Aerobiome during the SAIL Campaign

This project uses data collected from weather balloons to study fluorescent aerosol concentrations, accumulation and coarse-mode size distributions. We also collect aerosol samples for analysis with high- resolution mass spectrometry and microscopy at the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory to identify specific particle morphologies, chemical compositions, and biomarkers.
Keywords aerosol size and composition, biomarkers, fluorescence, mass spectroscopy, tethered balloon system
