Abstract

Recent intensive sampling and numerical modeling studies have given insights to the processes driving atmospheric chemistry in the mid-Atlantic region. We summarize the meteorology and air quality measurements conducted as part of the NASA Deriving Information on Surface Conditions from COlumn and VERtically Resolved Observations Relevant to Air Quality (DISCOVER-AQ) campaign and other mid-Atlantic sampling intensives during July 2011. We review the important findings of the work contained within the Processes Impacting NEar-Surface Atmospheric Pollutants (PINESAP) special issue and highlight the importance of intensive sampling campaigns as a means of gaining understanding of atmospheric chemistry in a changing climate.
