Environmental Management and Byproduct Utilization Laboratory
Project Number: 1245-12610-001-10
Nonfunded Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Sep 01, 2012
End Date: Sep 30, 2015
Measure ambient concentrations of atmospheric components at the agriculture-urban interface of the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Results will be used to discern the fate and transport of agriculturally-related pollutants and their effects on air quality.
Measure atmospheric components at the agriculture-urban interface at one location in Beltsville, Maryland. Samples will usually be collected weekly or bi-weekly throughout the year. Samples will include particulate matter and semi-volatile and volatile organic compounds.
