Scientists launch project to help predict air quality, enhance crop yields

Understanding how air flows at night and over variable topography will help farmers, forecasters. Tracking how air moves at night near the Earth's surface could provide insights into how air pollution spreads and when it's best to apply pesticides.
This week, a team of University of South Carolina (USC) and University of Illinois (U of I) researchers will launch a project to do just that. Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the two-month experiment -- called Stable Atmospheric Variability and Transport, or SAVANT -- will run from Sept. 15 to Nov. 15 in and near ...
