Atmospheric Chemistry Program Seminar

Tweezing Out the Interfacial Properties that Control the Chemistry of Atmospheric Aerosol Particles

Ryan Sullivan, Associate Professor
Department of Chemistry, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University

Remote only: Please contact Anne.Handschy@colorado.edu for link

Atmospheric aerosol particles have important yet poorly understood effects on air quality, health, atmospheric chemistry, cloud microphysics, and climate change. All these impacts of aerosols are governed by their composition and chemical mixing state – how components are distributed amongst individual particles – and by their morphology or internal structure. Together these two properties determine what lies at each particle’s interface, and this in turn controls how the particle interacts with reactant gases, condensable vapors, radiation, water vapor, and clouds. We advanced the aerosol optical tweezers (AOT) technique to determine the morphology and chemical properties of phase-separated individual droplets that contain complex secondary organic aerosol (SOA). We can now perform AOT experiments on realistic mimics of mixed atmospheric particles to understand their interfacial properties and how these evolve. Our finding of the prevalence of a phase-separated core–shell morphology and the existence of a stable emulsified state of SOA have important new implications for the reactivity and impacts of atmospheric aerosol. Our recent high-accuracy measurements of droplet acidity have enabled novel explorations of the interplay between gas reactive uptake and the resulting changes in pH that can then drive phase separations and alter morphology, which in turn can impede further reactivity.

Biomass burning is a major global source of atmospheric pollutants and much research has focused on the carbonaceous emissions from wildfires. Biomass-burning aerosol is complex and highly heterogeneous, often containing appreciable amounts of inorganic solutes including chloride salts with unknown reactivity and implications for oxidant budgets and atmospheric chemistry. The natural production of a key nighttime reservoir of nitrogen oxides, N2O5(g), in biomass-burning smoke was identified through chamber experiments on authentic biomass-burning aerosol. Our discovery that N2O5(g) often reacts with the chloride salts in smoke aerosol from tall grasses to produce ClNO2(g) instead of HNO3(g) has important implications for the lifetime of nitrogen oxides and the impacts of biomass burning on atmospheric oxidants and photochemical smog production. The surprisingly low reaction probability of N2O5(g) was determined to be due to organic carbon coatings that protect the salt phases from the gaseous reactants but can be removed as the aerosol ages further. Salt deliquescence at high relative humidity can greatly increase the reaction probability as the hydrolysis of N2O5 is driven by chemistry in aqueous phases.

Atmospheric Aerosol Analysis by Online Extractive Electrospray Ionization Mass Spectrometry

Dr. Jay Slowik,
Paul Scherrer Institute

Mass spectrometry is a powerful tool for the analysis of aerosol composition. However, tradeoffs typically exist between the loss of chemical information due to thermal decomposition and/or ionization-induced fragmentation on the one hand, and lower time resolution and/or separated collection/analysis stages on the other. We address these issues through the development of an extractive electrospray ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometer (EESI-TOF), which provides online, highly time-resolved measurements of aerosol composition without significant decomposition or fragmentation. Further, the EESI-TOF provides a versatile sampling/ionization framework, as by simply changing the composition of the primary spray and mass spectrometer polarity, the instrument can be configured to optimize detection of different organic fractions or water-soluble metals, while the sampling inlet can be configured to allow separate detection of the gas and particle phase. Two applications of the EESI-TOF are presented. First, we demonstrate rapid intra-particle decomposition reactions in secondary organic aerosol generated from the dark ozonolysis of α-pinene, as well as further reaction on the exposure of the aerosol to visible light. Second, we explore the sources and processes governing SOA composition in complex urban environments.

Mass fluxes of radical precursors in wildfire plumes:

Kyle Zarzana, postdoc,
Volkamer Group (1/2 seminar)

and

Constraining wildfire emission inventories using airborne flux measurements

Johana Romero-Alvarez, postdoc,
Volkamer Group (1/2 seminar)

1. Biomass burning emits a complex mixture of gases and particles that can vary rapidly over short spatial and temporal scales. Secondary chemistry driven in part by gas-phase radicals leads to downwind formation of ozone and particles which affect climate and adversely impact public health. Quantifying the emissions of radical precursors such as NO2, HONO, and carbonyls such as HCHO is an important first step to constraining their role in smoke chemistry, but this can be difficult due to plume inhomogeneities. Column measurements along the direct solar beam integrate over the vertical variability, and when made from an airborne platform can be used to determine mass fluxes on the scale of a wildfire. In this talk I will be presenting measurements from the Biomass Burning Flux Measurements of Trace Gases and Aerosols (BB-FLUX) campaign that was conducted in the northwest United States during the summer of 2018. The University of Colorado Solar Occultation Flux (SOF) and the Zenith Sky Differential Optical Absorption Spectroscopy (ZS-DOAS) instruments were deployed on the University of Wyoming King Air research aircraft, and these instruments measured column densities of numerous gases, including but not limited to CO, NH3, C2H6, HCN, PAN, HONO, NO2, and HCHO. Using a combination of data from these two instruments I will present estimates of radical fluxes from wildfires. Additionally, I will briefly touch on several other aspects of our BB-FLUX work, including determining carbon fluxes as well as linking the fire radiative energy measured from space with the aircraft derived fluxes.

and

2. Wildfire emit significant amounts of trace gases and particulate matter that impact atmospheric processes and human health, and accurate emissions are required to quantify determine the impacts of fires. Numerous inventories have been developed to estimate emissions using either measurements of fire radiative energy or of the burned area. These inventories often vary by several orders of magnitude, even for inert species such as CO, and until recently opportunities to valid these models have been limited. The University of Colorado Solar Occultation Flux (CU SOF) instrument can determine highly time resolved fluxes for many species from wildfires, and during the summer of 2018 was deployed as part of the Biomass Burning Flux Measurements of Trace Gases and Aerosols (BB-FLUX) campaign in the northwest United States. Over 100 fluxes measurements of a variety of species including but not limited to CO, NH 3 , small alkanes, and HCN, were performed on 18 different fires spanning different fuel types, fuel loadings, and fire intensities. Additionally, highly detailed measurements of the fire areas were made post campaign by the National Ecological Observatory Network and the US Forest Service. This rich dataset provides a unique opportunity to evaluate and constrain emission inventories. Comparisons between the measured fluxes and the FRP-based emissions inventory used in HRRR-Smoke will be presented as well as experimentally derived conversion factors of FRP to pyrogenic CO emissions.
