PASCCALS: Process-Level Advancements of Climate through Cloud and Aerosol Lifecycle Studies

This project guides the activities of research teams from Brookhaven and Argonne national laboratories to advance our understanding of the interactions between particles in the air, clouds, and radiation in order to reduce uncertainties in determining the causes of climate change and associated climate feedbacks. As the lead for aerosol research, we focus on black carbon, or soot, and are developing a new instrument to conduct in situ measurement of black carbon in the atmosphere.
