If you're interested in planting trees with low VOC emissions in urban areas, which species should you consider? Some new research from this project and a tool from the Forest Service may provide answers.
Detlev Helmig will speak tonight at the Front Range Urban Forestry Council (FRUFC) meeting on the results of the Trees and VOCs project.
Visiting student Romain Baghi returns, Ryan Daly completes his PhD, and visiting student Eva Joo conducts ozone tests.
Our work at Creekside Nursery is all wrapped up; but we are starting to work in Michigan as part of the CABINEX project.
A full summer of gathering data at our nursery site, connecting with outreach partners, and meeting new undergrad students.
Collecting data at the nursery and partnering with the Institute for Environmental Solutions.
Field work, an open house for middle school students, and a new team member have stirred up our summer.
We are collecting data from trees at Creekside Nursery.
Detlev joins Denver's Tree by Tree: Mile High Million advisory council.
A new LiCOR device and changing the adsorbent used to analyze gases have kept us busy.
The team is getting good results from its enclosure measurements of volatile organic compounds emitted from trees.
Why has Ryan been spending so much time in the INSTAAR parking lot? Because he's been getting the instrument trailer ready for the field season - and giving tours to junior high students.
If scientists aren't working in the lab, or in the field, where are they? Chances are they're writing an article, conference paper, or book chapter to share their work.
Tanarit becomes Dr. Tanarit
New emissions data from our experiments has been incorporated into an emission model and an air chemistry and quality model.
Still working on the instruments...
In which Ryan fixes the mass spectrometer, and we have a fixation on calibration.
VOC research begins on trees at Creekside Nursery and NCAR. We are already finding out interesting things about sesquiterpenes and temperature.
