#CLIMATE #p2 Studying pollution over Chesapeake Bay

By Joe Atkinson NASA Langley Research Center It was a pretty typical day for NASA scientists studying pollution in the Hampton Roads region of southeastern Virginia — busy, in other words. And for good reason. The work they were doing could help improve air-quality forecasts in a region where the air quality picture isn’t totally clear. Over the course of a few hours, measurements would pour in from several different sensors at several locations in the lower Chesapeake Bay — sometimes simultaneously, sometimes one right after another. Sensors were installed on a C-23 Sherpa aircraft, an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV), a balloon, ground-based lidar stations, a maritime research vessel and automobile-based sensors. And that’s just to name a few. The sensors sampled the atmosphere at different altitudes and locations. They sometimes sampled the exact same locations at the exac...
