Atmospheric processing of chemical compounds and direct measurements of particle loss by dry and wet deposition
Anthropogenic pollutants, like NOₓ and black carbon (BC), are ubiquitous in the atmosphere and impact human health and the climate. Understanding the atmospheric fate of such pollutants is critical in understanding their impact. This work focuses on understanding the loss of two key pollutants: the chemical termination of gas phase NO and NO₂ (NOₓ) and the deposition of refractory black carbon (rBC) particles. Additionally, because the tools to analyze particle fluxes and coated rBC are lacking, this work describes the development of software to analyze particle fluxes and estimate the thickness ...
