The objective of BEACHON-RoMBAS is to study the mechanisms by which particles are created in the forest and the ways that may regulate and link the biogeochemical and water cycles. The scientific foci of BEACHON-RoMBAS include: measuring emissions of primary biological particles (PBAP) from the forest ecosystem; improving understanding of biogenic secondary organic aerosol (SOA), including gas phase precursors, aerosol physicochemical properties, aerosol transformations, and its impacts in the atmosphere; evaluating the importance of water availability in those PBAP and SOA emissions, transformations, and impacts.
