Long name: 
Western Atmospheric Mercury Experiment
Dates: 
October 14, 2010 to December 21, 2010
Location: 
Mather, CA
Platform(s): 
NSF/NCAR C-130
Description: 

Western Atmospheric Mercury Experiment (WAMO) is a pilot project exploring an important phenomenon of the mercury cycle in the atmosphere. The project will test the ability of research instrumentation to measure reactive and non-reactive mercury species and to relate these measurements to the atmospheric aerosol concentrations.

WAMO used the C-130 aircraft, which flew three research flights from Mather Airport near Sacramento, CA. The flights targeted Mt. Bachelor and other mountain ridges in Nevada and overflew ground observing stations.
