Abstract:

The goal of this research is to increase the understanding meteorological and chemical mechanisms that controll atmospheric particulate sulfur concentrations, using standard meteorological charts. Aerosol particles were collected at nine sampling sites and analyzed in steps corresponding to 2- hour time intervals. Atmospheric particulate sulfur concentration variations were found to vary in predictable ways, depending on the synoptic-scale weather system affecting the sampling sites. Insight into how synoptic-scale meteorological process affect atmospheric particulate sulfur concentrations are developed by this thesis.
