Mission Overview:

Southeast Michigan (SEMI) is currently designated as Nonattainment of the U.S. federal ozone standard and many locations in southern Ontario also frequently exceed the Canadian ambient air quality standard for ozone. The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) seeks potential attainment strategies for the SEMI area. EGLE and their partners at Ontario Ministry of Environment, Conservation and Parks (MECP), Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) also want to better understand what contributes to elevated ozone levels in this Border region. To investigate, regulatory and scientific agencies including EGLE, MECP, the U.S. EPA, ECCC, NASA, and other partners, are conducting the Michigan-Ontario Ozone Source Experiment (MOOSE) in 2021 and 2022.

Aerodyne Research, Inc. participated in the Chemical Source Signatures (CHESS) sub-experiment of MOOSE by using their mobile laboratory to measure emission plumes from point sources during the campaign. More info here.
