Professor Steiner in new MConneX video

Professor Allison Steiner is in a new MConneX video titled, “Killer Trees."

The video takes a look at the Volatile Organic Compounds produced by trees. Known as VOCs, these chemicals are extremely reactive, and when combined with human emissions, they can cause air quality concerns such as increased ozone.

In the video, Steiner explains the different types of tree emissions, and how researchers are still discovering how human and plants collide in the atmosphere.
