Ambrose publishes paper on new instrument for measurements of hydrogen cyanide

On June 1, Dr. Jesse Ambrose and colleagues published a paper in the journal Atmospheric Measurement Techniques that describes a new instrument for measurements of hydrogen cyanide (HCN), a selective tracer of biomass burning emissions, in the lower atmosphere. The instrument is capable of providing long-term HCN measurements in the background atmosphere and will serve as a valuable research tool for assessing the influence of wildfire and domestic wood burning smoke on atmospheric chemistry and air quality.
