This book presents the widely applicable information obtained during the planning and management of the collaborative regional air quality study known as the San Joaquin Valley Air Quality Study/Atmospheric Utility Signatures, Predictions, and Experiments (SJVAQS/AUSPEX). The extensive experience and knowledge gained during and after the study is clearly presented in this guide - an ideal working reference for developing regional and subregional air quality and meteorological field measurement and modeling studies.
