HOME TO THE WORLD'S LARGEST
INDOOR ATMOSPHERIC CHAMBER
Home to the world's largest and most technologically advanced facility for the study of chemical processes in the atmosphere. Additionally, a smaller, mobile chamber can be moved to various locations to conduct research on-site.
A 130-cubic meter atmospheric simulation chamber and instrumentation that precisely controls variables such as temperature, pressure, humidity, and light to model a wide range of real-world conditions.
The Atmospheric Processes Research Group advances understanding of the chemical pathways leading to secondary organic aerosol formation in the atmosphere.
The Atmospheric Chamber
Researchers employ the large atmospheric chamber and the smaller mobile chamber to study the impacts of emissions from diverse sources such as vehicles, wildfires, agricultural operations, and consumer products with the goal of developing new air quality models and improving the accuracy of existing ones.
