Project:  Mass spectrometer signal processing for diagnosis of air quality in Southeast Asia
Disciplines:  Data Science, Chemistry
Mentor:  Paul Wennberg, R Stanton Avery Professor of Atmospheric Chemistry, (EAS),
Mentor URL:  (opens in new window)
Background:  Caltech mass spectrometers will obtain data on air chemistry across southeast Asia during the NASA ASIA-AQ campaign in spring 2024. See: . This project involves improving the signal processing from the Caltech instruments from this mission.
Description:  Data science project to develop new signal processing code to analyze mass spectra obtained from the Caltech Airborne instrument during ASIA-AQ. Project will involve retrieval of chemical information from 5000 M/delta(M) resolution mass spectra. Initial steps include mass alignment, evaluation of lineshape, and development of procedures for removing background ion signals from the spectra.
