Houston, Texas - Urban air quality studies

Urban zones represent areas in which significant amounts of gaseous pollutants and particulate matter are released into the atmosphere. The Houston-Galveston Brazoria Area (HGB), located close to the Gulf of Mexico, is the fourth largest metropolitan area in the United States. 
The University of Houston (UH) set up an air quality measurement facility at the University main campus on the roof of the 18-story tall North Moody Tower residence hall. The general information about this site is given in Table 1. This facility includes a 35 ft high sampling tower and is equipped with air chemistry measurements including O3, CO, NO, NO2, NO, PAN, PPN, MPAN, VOCs, and meteorological instrumentation. It also includes measurements of photolysis frequencies for O3, NO, HONO and HCHO and 16 other important photolysis reactions.
Aero-Laser equipment is used for the TexAQS II Radical Measurement Project (TRAMP) in 2006 and several other research programs.
