Session 1 Cloud Effects on Atmospheric Chemistry

Wednesday, 13 January 2016: 8:30 AM-10:00 AM
Room 356 ( New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center)
Host: 18th Conference on Atmospheric Chemistry
Kenneth Pickering, NASA/GSFC, Atmospheric Chemistry and Dynamics Laboratory, Greenbelt, MD
Annmarie Carlton, Rutgers University, Newark, NJ

Clouds affect the distributions and abundance of atmospheric constituents in many ways. This session seeks abstracts that address 1) vertical transport and redistribution of trace gases and aerosols by clouds; 2) wet scavenging; 3) aqueous chemistry; 4) lightning NOx production; 5) modification of photolysis rates; and 6) resulting downwind effects on new particle formation and photochemistry. Results from both field measurement programs (such as SOAS, SENEX, DC3, SEAC4RS, CONTRAST) and modeling studies are sought.
