Richmond Field Station

The node on the UC Berkeley Field Station in Richmond sits on 580, half a mile north of the shoreline. Comparing measurements recorded by this node to others that sit along 580, such as the Nystrom Elementary node, provide insight into traffic and emissions patterns along this major Bay Area freeway. In addition, comparison with more western nodes closer to the Chevron Richmond refinery provide insight into how emissions from the refinery travel and dissipate with distance.
