The Long Island Sound Tropospheric Ozone Study (LISTOS) was a multi-agency project that studied air quality in areas near and around the Long Island Sound. The primary operations for LISTOS took place in the summer of 2018. NASA’s Cessna aircraft, its Huey helicopter and Stony Brook University’s Long EZ gathered measurements of trace gases at varying atmospheric altitudes while field sites, the MV Park City watercraft and mobile platforms collected measurements closer to Earth’s surface. This was done in order to assess the effect of emissions on air quality near the Long Island Sound, as well as to better understand how sea breeze transports pollution. A few of the agencies that participated in LISTOS and provided funding include: the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Northeast States for Coordinated Air Use Management (NESCAUM), and the New Jersey and Connecticut Departments of Energy and Environmental Protection, just to name a few.
