Charged Aerosols in the Troposphere

Under the direction and support of Dr. Arthur C. Aikin of NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, Nomad Research developed a theory to show how the uptake coefficient of an aerosol changes when the droplet is charged. In addition, data analysis and control programs were written to study the variations of aerosols in the troposphere from ground and airplane measurements.

Results of the analysis have been presented at the Fourth International Conference on Chemical Kinetics.

A paper discussing these results appeared in the Geophysical Research Letters, 25, 1309-1312, 1998.
