Project 33 - Isotopic AQ Monitoring- UCSD

Project 33's objectives were to: use a coordinated aerosol sulfate sampling in the vicinity of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to measure the sulfate oxygen isotope ratio measurements. These measurements will be used to directly determine for the first time, the aircraft sulfate emissions in this region determine the regional dispersion of the aircraft emissions and, to use the isotope ratios to distinguish from other sulfate sources that are overlain with the aircraft source evaluate the seasonal character of the emissions investigate and develop technique for shorter duration sampling and analysis for future, more extensive campaigns.
