    Description

    In the Sierra Nevada, studies are being conducted to assess the impacts of both anthropogenic and biogenic hydrocarbon emissions on regional tropospheric ozone and fine aerosol production. Impacts of ozone deposition and management practices on ecosystem health are also being studied. Human-induced changes in regional air quality have consequences for Sierra Nevada ecosystems and human health. To explore these consequences, research has been conducted at a site in the central Sierra Nevada since June 1997. The research site is located in a ponderosa pine plantation which is downwind of the significant anthropogenic pollution sources of Sacramento and the agricultural Central Valley (Goldstein and others 2000). To illustrate the complex links between air pollution, biogenic gas emissions, and forest management, three specific results from this research are briefly summarized below.
