Summary:
Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of California at Berkeley have been studying the photochemical characteristics of air pollution in southern California as part of an effort funded by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to improve the reliability of air quality models. The Berkeley Lab team’s work has yielded new insights into how variability in the solar flux and the concentration of aerosols in the atmosphere affect the formation of smog.

BERKELEY, CA — Computer models of air quality provide local governments with the scientific information they use to regulate air pollution emissions -- but these models are not always as accurate as regulators would like.
