Aerosol data from the Interagency Monitoring of Protected Visual Environments or (IMPROVE) network and the Model and Observation EvaluatioN Toolkit (MONET) created by Barry Baker, (Baker et al., 2017), was utilized to program average levels of phosphorous, Organic Carbon, Elemental Carbon, and PM2.5 in the southeastern United States. Aerosols have consequential effects on the atmosphere, human health and climate change. This research theorizes the Bermuda High pressure system as a transport mechanism of aerosol concentrations over the southeast US.
