Abstract : The volatility apparatus to be used in the proposed work is being currently assembled at the Atmospheric Sciences Laboratory, White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico. When the volatility apparatus is constructed and tested it will be shipped to University College Galway. It is then planned to carry out field volatility measurements of the ambient aerosol, primarily for the unmodified maritime air mass and secondly for the partially modified European continental air mass. Continuous measurements for periods up to some weeks spanning all four seasons are planned. In preparation for these measurements a digital readout facility has been acquired for the IM 146 velocity and direction transmitter to be used for recording wind speed and direction measurement system has been electronically processed to facilitate continuous recording on a microcomputer.
