Temporal Variability in Biogenic Emissions
Biogenic emissions of hydrocarbons and NO are important precursors of ozone and particulate matter. Regulatory modeling often neglects the monthly and interannual variability in vegetation that can affect biogenic emission rates. This research is applying satellite data of vegetation and trace gases to explore how biogenic emission rates vary with meteorology, drought, and other conditions.
