Balloons measuring air quality

This story was published Wednesday, May 10th, 2006

By Anna King, Herald staff writer

Air pollution in China, Korea or Japan might seem like a

far-off problem. But for Brett Taubman it's measurable and

real -- in the Mid-Columbia. For about a month, the

Penn State scientist has been working …

Tuesday afternoon, Taubman deployed a large weather

balloon, shot a green laser into the air above his trailer

and scheduled a four-engine C-130 cargo plane to fly

a spiral above Richland and collect air for his tests.


IMPEX C-130 flights / altitudes.

red 7- 8 km

orange 6 - 7 km

yellow 5 - 6 km

lt. green 4 - 5 km

dk. green 3 - 4 km

lt blue 2 - 3 km

blue 1 - 2 km

dk. blue 0 - 1 km



Example of the data smorgasbord:

  • Preliminary summary:

  • IMPEX accomplished its main objectives.

  • Many interesting observations to pursue

  • Preliminary merges are complete & analyses are beginning.

  • Let’s see what has been learned so far …
