Biogenic Emissions From the 1995 Southern Oxidants Study (SOS) Nashville/Middle Tennessee Ozone Study Data Base
Entry ID: SOS_E2


Summary
Abstract: E2 - Biogenic Emissions

The Southern Oxidants Study (SOS) conducted a major field research
campaign in Nashville/Middle Tennessee area in June and July 1994 and
1995. The goal of this study was to improve scientific understanding
of the processes that control the production and distribution of ozone
in the troposphere.

Measurements of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from biogenic
sources and their oxidation products were collected in a predominantly
oak forest at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) during the 1995
Southern Oxidants Study (SOS) Nashville/Middle Tennessee Ozone Study.
Measurements were made on three scales - leaf-level, canopy-level, and
landscape-level. Data collected included isoprenes, methyl vinyl
ketones, methacrolein, non-methane hydrocarbons (NMHCs), wind
speed/direction, humidity, temperature, and pressure, inorganic and
organic peroxide concentrations and flux, ozone concentration and
flux, CO2 and water vapor concentration and flux, UV-b radiation, net
radiation, photosynthetically active radiation (PAR), and vegetation
species survey including diameter at breast height (dbh) measurements.

The study was conducted from July 13, 1995 through July 21, 1995.

The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) was the coordinator for the 1995
Southern Oxidants Study Nashville/Middle Tennessee Ozone Study. See:
