Bodega Marine Lab

Global Atmosphere Watch (GAW) at Bodega Marine Laboratory (BML)

BML is located about 50 miles north of San Francisco. The air at each location is representative of very distinct layers of the atmosphere. Measurements at BML observe air in the boundary layer; that is, the air closest to the Earth’s surface that is most influenced by emissions from the ocean and its marine life as well as shipping traffic in the Eastern Pacific.
