Emerging air quality concerns in California: Atmospheric fates of neonicotinoid pesticides and increasing wildfire influence on ozone attainment

Abstract: Application of atmospheric chemistry has been the cornerstone of California’s landmark air quality improvement over the 20th century. Yet challenges with pesticides, poor air quality, and disproportionate pollution burdens in environmental justice communities continue to evolve in the 21st century. The majority of this work developed techniques to characterize the atmospheric fates of neonicotinoid pesticides, which are now the world’s most commonly used insecticides.
