PROPHET Welcomes Collaborators for CABINEX in Summer 2009
In operation since 1997, the Program for Research on Oxidants: Photochemistry Emissions and Transport (PROPHET) has been the home to several cooperative studies in atmospheric chemistry. PROPHET will begin its twelfth year this summer with the collaborative efforts of nearly four dozen researchers in a project known as Community Atmosphere-Biosphere Interactions Experiements, or CABINEX. The primary goal of CABINEX is to provide a collaborative environment in which the resources of a number of research institutions (comprised mostly of universities and private firms) are mutually shared for the purposes of answering one common scientific topic relating to interactions between the atmosphere and biosphere.
Past research has found that biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOCs), originating in forest canopies, can influence basic processes within the troposphere. Additionally, forest succession and climate change share in the responsibility of the changing face of these forest canopies. Motivated by the concurring Forest Accelerated Succesion Experiment (FASET), CABINEX aims to examine the effects on microscale atmospheric chemistry within the canopy layer owing to forest succession.
