Andrea’s current research involves measuring air emissions from new oil and gas wells being drilled in Garfield County, Colorado. Specifically, it involves taking out vehicles equipped with some real-time samplers to measure methane and acetylene, some canisters to collect whole-air samples which can be returned to the CSU lab to determine the concentration of 70+ chemical species, and towers to measure meteorology to make measurements downwind of well pads. The ultimate goal of this work is to understand what is being emitted from the drilling process, how those chemicals moves in the atmosphere, and how those emissions impact people.
