    Assessing the Sources of Elevated Front Range Ozone Based on Observations from the Boulder Atmospheric Observatory by Emily Fischer, Colorado State University


    "The Denver Metro/North Front Range area currently violates the National Ambient Air Quality Standard (NAAQS) for ozone. I will discuss observations of ozone, its precursors, and other secondary species collected at the Boulder Atmospheric Observatory during summer 2014 and 2015. My group has used our observations to 1) untangle the contribution of different classes of volatile organic compounds to ozone production in our region, and 2) identify how the addition of aged wildfire smoke can change the abundance of ozone precursors."
