Setting up a monitoring network in Puerto Rico to understand the Saharan Air Layer

February 27, 2023

Last week, Dr. Westervelt visited Prof. Héctor Jimenez of the Department of Physics at University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez (UPRM). We are kicking off a new collaborative project using well-calibrated PM10 instruments from QuantAQ to understand the impact of tropical meteorology and topography on the evolution of the Saharan Air Layer. Students from UPRM will lead the analysis and will also visit LDEO. Some photos below!
