NASA and Virginia DEQ Enclosures

The Chemistry and Physics Atmospheric Boundary Layer Experiment (CAPABLE) is a ground-based observation site created in 2009 that is dedicated to studying atmospheric conditions in the Tidewater region of Virginia.

The site, which is located at NASA’s Langley Research Center, is a collaborative effort between the Science Directorate at NASA Langley, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality. Together, these partners operate a suite of instrumentation designed to track and observe pollutants in the Earth’s troposphere.
