Testbed Cases: MILAGRO Field Experiments

The Megacity Initiative: Local and Global Research Observations (MILAGRO) conducted during March 2006 was composed of four collaborative field experiments. The USDA Forest Service and Mexican agencies supported other measurements. Extensive meteorological, chemical, and aerosol measurements were collected to describe the evolution of anthropogenic and biomass burning plumes from their source to several hundred kilometers downwind.
