Atmospheric Chemistry

Photochemical smog and air pollution have been shown to cause acute and chronic damages to human and ecosystem health.  Atmospheric chemists at the Wadsworth Center are at the forefront of understanding and addressing the critical role gaseous and particulate pollutants play in the formation of oxidants and smog, and the human health impact of pollution.  Laboratory studies, field observations, and exposure assessments are conducted by our scientists to tackle these environmental issues.
