  3. An eddy covariance system for simultaneous flux measurements of total reactive nitrogen, ammonia, and nitrogen oxides (NOx).

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 84

    SummaryNitrogen balance plays a critical role in agricultural food security and biodiversity. While some nitrogen addition, such as fertilization, is highly beneficial to agriculture, too much can result in lower crop yields and plant loss. Air pollution can tip the nitrogen balance toward unhealthy soil and poor growing conditions and affect a plant's ability to cope with drought. Understandi ...

  4. Power electronics for use in hydro power, renewable energy, and industrial waste energy recapture

    SBC: BURNSHIRE HYDROELECTRIC, L.L.C.            Topic: 86

    Climate change is predicted to have major impacts on hydropower operations as weather extremes become more common. Typical hydropower facilities were designed and built to provide base load power. Further, increased addition of intermittent generation sources to the power grid over the last 20 years, such as solar and wind power, has resulted in hydropower operations being required to cycle on and ...

  10. Automated HCl laser monitor for long term and flight deployments

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 813

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: Tropospheric oxidation capacity is dominated by HOx photochemistry, however halogen atoms and oxides significantly affect these chemical cycles. A sensitive and robust measurement of gaseous HCl is critically important to improve our understanding of halogen chemistry and its impacts on the spatial and temporal oxidation capacity of the atmosphere. In Phase I, we met all of our ...
