The Campaign

The Ozone Water-Land Environmental Transition Study (OWLETS) was a project aimed at assessing air quality in and around the Chesapeake Bay area during the summers of 2017 and 2018. OWLETS had 2 deployments. The first deployment was led by NASA in 2017 and involved airborne measurements taken by NASA’s C-23 Sherpa aircraft along with measurements taken by several mobile platforms and field sites. The second deployment, often referred to as OWLETS-2, was led by the Maryland Department of Environment in 2018 and utilized the University of Maryland’s Cessna aircraft for airborne measurements along with mobile and field site instrumentation. Both deployments focused on creating vertical profiles of ozone and other trace gases during various air quality events in an effort to improve forecasting similar events in the future.
