Short summary
We present the development and characterization of the NCAR Atmospheric Simulation Chamber, which is operated in steady state continuous flow mode for simulating atmospheric daytime and nighttime chemistry over chemical regimes not accessible in traditional static chamber experiments. We focus on establishing an intermediate NO regime characterized by a constant steady-state NO level ranging from tens of ppt to a few ppb in the chamber.
