What researchers are learning about air pollution and the pandemic shutdown

External News Details

When the pandemic shutdown began in spring 2020, causing a sharp reduction in traffic — and with it, a decrease in nitrogen oxide emissions worldwide — researchers like Sally Ng, associate professor in the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences and the School of Chemical and Biomedical Engineering, saw a unique opportunity. "This opportunity provides us a way to take out one ingredient and look at the consequences on the other pollutants in the atmosphere," Ng says.
