Evolution of Organic Carbon Activities

Evolution of organic carbon

The organic compounds emitted and released in the atmosphere by natural or anthropogenic activities evolve progressively. Their oxidization results in the creation of a large number of highly functionalized « secondary » species which have a determinant influence on air quality and climate. In order to identify and quantify these species, field measurements, modeling approaches (chemical reaction generator and 3D models), and laboratory experiments (atmospheric simulation chambers) are simultaneously used at LISA.
