NYSERDA grant approved!
Updated: Jan 4
The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) has approved funding over the next five years for ASRC to continue the cloud water monitoring (sampling and analysis) at Whiteface Mountain, taking over from the Adirondack Lake Survey Corporation. We will continue monitoring the inorganic compounds and will also monitor for additional select organic analytes (particularly organic acids) within the cloud water on a routine basis throughout each summer sampling season. This is a very important step towards better understanding of the increasing organic aerosol mass loadings observed at the site, while extending the decades-long dataset that has provided a wealth of information about regional air quality and the health of the Adirondacks.
