ATom Mission interview clips

The ATom mission aboard NASA's DC-8 flying laboratory is sampling world-wide in one of the most extensive surveys of the atmosphere to date, measuring over 200 gases as well as airborne particles. The science team is particularly interested in methane, tropospheric ozone and black carbon particles, which have strong effects on climate and which all have both human and natural origins.

Below are interviews with four scientists participating in the research flights:
* Donald Blake, UC Irvine
* Róisín Commane, Harvard University
* Tom Ryerson, NOAA
* Jack Dibbs, University of New Hampshire
