Understanding Tropospheric Ozone in a Montane Tropical Rainforest: An Analysis of Ozone Levels in the Luquillo Mountains of Puerto Rico

Project Description: 

The purpose of this study is to understand the variations of canopy level ozone in this montane tropical rainforest. The study analyzed the ozone levels across time—hourly, monthly and seasonally. 8-hour averages were calculated to compare to US ozone standards. The ozone data was then combined with climate data to find correlations between ozone with temperature, relative humidity, precipitation, solar radiation and wind.

East Peak Climate

Project Description: 

The overall goal of this effort is to monitor the surface climate of the upper Luquillo Mountains. This station provides basic hourly and daily climate data that is comparable to the Bisley and El Verde stations at lower elevations. It also provides the long-term reference data that supplements shorter-term, high frequency measurements.
