The Front Range Air Pollution and Photochemistry Experiment, or FRAPPE, has launched its month long expedition to obtain information on ozone pollution to better assist decision making when it comes to air quality. The Northern Front Range was chosen as an area that routinely experiences poor air quality as well as three other locations across the United States. This program is part of the DISCOVER-AQ, Deriving Information on Surface Conditions from Column and Vertically Resolved Observations Relevant to Air Quality, aimed at finding air quality solutions. The program is a collaboration between many organizations aimed to utilize this technology to identify the sources of ozone pollution to better our air quality. The program will conclude August 16, 2014.
