|We are interested in atmospheric pollutants and tracers as follows:
a) Tropospheric ozone (photochemical oxidants);
b) Precursors of tropospheric ozone (eg. NOx, VOC, atmospheric radicals),
c) Particulate matters (eg. PM2.5, particulate organic nitrates).
Tracers are investigated via laboratory studies and ambient observations.
Especially, sensitive analyzers of NOx (NO, NO2) and related species have
been developed. We are challenging to capture the behaviours of atmospheric
species in order to know photochemical reactions in the troposphere.
