Research Projects

 

Source Apportionment of PM2.5 from SEARCH network (as Principal Investigator)

 

PM2.5 samples from the SEARCH (the Southeastern Aerosol Research and Characterization) network from 1999 to 2005 are analyzed in our laboratory to understand the sources to primary organic carbon in the Southeastern U.S using organic tracers and chemical mass balance modeling. Samples were obtained from eight sites in four states: GA, AL, MS, and FL (map of SEARCH sites). Daily PM2.5 samples from Jefferson St., Atlanta (the former Atlanta Supersite), during July 2001 and January 2002 were collected and analyzed to investigate the daily variation of sources during summer and winter. The source apportionment study of primary carbon and PM2.5 at SEARCH sites will allow us to understand the PM2.5 sources at rural and urban sites in the Southeastern U.S., and their spatial and temporal trends.

 

Carbonaceous Aerosol in the Tennessee Valley (as Principal Investigator)

 

Sources of carbonaceous aerosols collected from three sites of Chattanooga, TN, Muscle Shoals, AL, and Look Rock, TN in the Tennessee Valley Region (TVR) were apportioned using both molecular marker-based chemical mass balance (CMB-MM) modeling and radiocarbon (14C) measurement and the results were compared. The comparison between the 14C and CMB results revealed that contemporary sources dominated other OC in the TVR, especially in summer (84%).

 

Fine Particulate Analysis in Indian Cities (as Co-Principal Investigator)

 

Fine particulate samples were obtained from five cities in India including Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, and Chandigarh. Fine particle organic carbon is speciated in our laboratory to quantify sources contributing to fine particle pollution (CMB-MM). Samples were collected in four seasons (March, June, October, and December 2001) in Delhi, Mumbai, and Kolkata and in summer in Chandigarh. On average, primary emissions from fossil fuel combustion (coal, diesel, and gasoline) are responsible for about 25-33% of PM2.5 mass in Delhi, 21-36% in Mumbai, 37-57% in Kolkata, and 28% in Chandigarh. The contribution from biomass combustion to ambient PM2.5 in Indian cities is significant (7-20% for Delhi, 7-20% for Mumbai, 13-18% for Kolkata, and 8% for Chandigarh).

 

Study of Air Quality Impacts Resulting from Prescribed Burning on Military Facilities (as Co-Principal Investigator)

 

The primary objectives of this study are to answer the following questions: 1) the extent that prescribed burning at Fort Benning, Columbus, GA, affects the local and regional air quality, 2) the composition and concentration of gas and particle phase air pollutants, and 3). the characteristics of air pollutants emitted at different burning conditions such as flaming and smoldering phase. My group will focus on the analysis of the particle phase organic compounds emitted from the prescribed burning. We use Andersen High Volume Sampler to collect the fine particles, PM2.5, on the quartz fiber filter, which will be extracted with solvents and the organic compounds will be identified and quantified with GC/MS (Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry).

 

PM2.5 sources in the Eastern U.S. (as Principal Investigator)

 

Source apportionment using organic tracers and CMB is conducted with the PM2.5 samples collected from USEPA eastern speciation trend network (STN) during summer and winter 2002. The samples were from the urban and rural sites in 23 eastern states. In my lab, samples are extracted with solvents, filtered, concentrated, derivatized, then injected into GC/MS (gas chromatography/mass spectrometry) for organic compounds Identification and quantification. The GC/MS used in our lab is HP GC/MSD (6890 GC, 5973N) with autosampler.
