Short summary
We flew a small single-engine instrumented aircraft in a large valley of California to study the factors that determine air pollutant levels in a region of the US that faces serious air quality challenges. After carefully accounting for atmospheric mixing, we found that agriculture is likely a significant and currently underestimated source of nitrogen oxide, a precursor to both ozone and particulate matter pollution and methane, a potent greenhouse gas.
