Coming soon: SP-AMS and other aerosol measurement tools

The National Science Foundation recently funded our proposal to acquire an Aerodyne Soot-Particle Aerosol Mass Spectrometer (SP-AMS) (Award ID: 1229298).  The acquisition of the SP-AMS will create opportunities for cutting edge aerosol research not only in Philadelphia, but also in the greater mid-Atlantic region and beyond.  We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the SP-AMS, and are looking forward to the science we can achieve with the cutting-edge analytical instrumentation.  Thank you NSF, and stay tuned!
