  1. c: Measurements of the Chemical Composition of Atmospheric Aerosols

    Release Date: 07-29-2011Open Date: 08-02-2011Due Date: 09-17-2011Close Date: 09-17-2011

    Improved measurement methods are needed for the real-time characterization of the bulk and the sizeresolved chemical composition of ambient aerosols, particularly carbonaceous aerosols. Such improved measurements would be used to facilitate the identification of the origin of aerosols, (i.e., primary versus secondary and fossil fuel versus biogenic). Also, these measurements could help elucidate h ...

  2. d: Measurements of the Chemical Composition of Atmospheric Aerosol Precursors

    Release Date: 07-29-2011Open Date: 08-02-2011Due Date: 09-17-2011Close Date: 09-17-2011

    In order to better understand the evolution of aerosols in the open air, grant applications are sought to develop instruments that can make fast measurements of gas phase organics or other substances that might either condense or dissolve into aerosols or cloud droplets. Of special interest are volatile organic compounds (VOC) and intermediate volatility organic compounds (IVOC). Although VOCs and ...

  3. e: Aerosol Size Distributions

    Release Date: 07-29-2011Open Date: 08-02-2011Due Date: 09-17-2011Close Date: 09-17-2011

    Knowledge of particle size distribution is essential for describing both direct and indirect radiative forcing by aerosols. However, current techniques fordetermining these distributions are often ambiguous because of the assumption that the particles are spherical. In particular, the optical techniques most often used in the 0.5-10 ?m size range have inherent problems. Therefore, grant applicatio ...

  4. f: Aerosol Scattering and Absorption (in situ)

    Release Date: 07-29-2011Open Date: 08-02-2011Due Date: 09-17-2011Close Date: 09-17-2011

    The aerosol absorption coefficient, together with the aerosol scattering coefficient, determines the single-scattering albedo. This key aerosol property, along with the factors that contribute to it, are critical for determining heating rates and climate forcing by aerosols. Therefore, grant applications are sought to develop reliable instruments for the in situ measurement of the single-scatterin ...

  6. 04: Carbon Cycle Measurements of the Atmosphere and the Biosphere

    Release Date: 07-29-2011Open Date: 08-02-2011Due Date: 09-17-2011Close Date: 09-17-2011

    Eighty-five percent of our nation's energy results from the burning of fossil fuels from vast reservoirs of coal, oil, and natural gas. These processes add carbon to the atmosphere, principally in the form of carbon dioxide (CO2). It is important to understand the fate of this excess CO2 in the global carbon cycle in order to assess contemporary terrestrial carbon sinks, the sensitivity of climate ...

  7. a: Sensors and Techniques for Measuring Terrestrial Carbon Sinks and Sources

    Release Date: 07-29-2011Open Date: 08-02-2011Due Date: 09-17-2011Close Date: 09-17-2011

    Measurement technology is required to quantify carbon sequestration by natural vegetation and ecosystems (i.e., carbon sinks) as well as CO2 emissions to the atmosphere from natural or industrial sources. Grant applications are sought to develop sensors and unique measurement techniques (and associated system technology, if appropriate) to detect and quantify annual net carbon changes of terrestri ...

  8. b: Novel Measurements of Carbon, CO2, and Trace Greenhouse Gas Constituents of Terrestrial and Atmospheric Media

    Release Date: 07-29-2011Open Date: 08-02-2011Due Date: 09-17-2011Close Date: 09-17-2011

    Improved measurement technology is needed to better characterize processes involving carbon transformations of soil, vegetation, and associatedecosystem components and exchanges with the atmosphere. Particular areas of interest include high resolution measurements of soil carbon/organic matter – i.e., the carbon content of biological tissues in various components (e.g., phytomass, detritus) of t ...

  9. c: Greenhouse Gas and Carbon Isotope Measurements from Aircraft

    Release Date: 07-29-2011Open Date: 08-02-2011Due Date: 09-17-2011Close Date: 09-17-2011

    Stable isotopologes of methane and carbon dioxide can be powerful tracers for identifying the sources of these greenhouse gases. Airborne surveys of isotopologes of these greenhouse gases made at sufficiently high precision and speed will be an invaluable tool in the studies of Arctic climate change and terrestrial carbon cycle. Instruments capable of operating on airborne platforms such as UAV’ ...
