Michigan Tech Researchers to Study Atmospheric Aerosols at PICO Mountain Research Observatory

The mountain’s remoteness and its elevation—7,713 feet—make it an ideal spot to study pollutants drifting east from North America. Lynn Mazzoleni, an assistant professor of chemistry, will focus on understanding aerosols’ chemistry and how they interact with sunlight. Claudio Mazzoleni, an assistant professor of physics, is a coinvestigator on that project and is lead investigator on a related grant to characterize how much sunlight aerosols are reflecting or absorbing… [read more]
