Yesterday I took an amazing trip out to Storm Peak lab with Dr. Christine Wiedinmyer, the only mountaintop air monitoring and research lab in North America. Christine and two CU graduate students were completing a short term study of particulates in the upper troposphere, with special instruments that allow very sensitive detection in order to study various organic, inorganic, natural and anthropogenic compounds, some coming from as far as Asia. In addition to interviewing Christine, Kelly and Eszter on video, I had the opportunity to talk to our DRI (Desert Research Institute) hosts, Gannet Hallar Ian McCubbin.
