Field measurements are an important part of the work we do, because the outdoor environment
cannot be fully replicated in the laboratory or in a model. Changing emissions, chemical aging,
and interactions with the natural environment all play a role in the pollutants we find in the
atmosphere. Whenever we look, we find surprises!

Laboratory measurements are essential for uncovering the fundamental processes at work in the
atmosphere, under conditions where individual parameters (such as temperature, pressure and
chemical composition) can be varied one-by-one. Single particle measurements are at the extreme
end of controlled experiments we are doing in the Lance Lab.

You can typically find us about halfway between the Adirondacks and NYC, at the Atmospheric Sciences Research Center (ASRC) in Albany NY (currently housed on the SUNY Poly campus, but soon to be moving to the new ETEC building)
