17th workshop on Atmospheric Chemistry & Air Pollution (2019)

Welcome to the 17th workshop on Atmospheric Chemistry & Air Pollution (2019),  held at the University of Birmingham, UK on the 25 - 27 September 2019.  

Science Themes for the 2019 workshop are:

  • General Atmospheric Chemistry (including laboratory, field, chamber and model work)
  • Biosphere-Atmosphere interactions (including responses to environmental change)
  • Multiphase Processes (including chemical interactions in SOA formation, and PM evolution)
  • Atmospheric chemistry research to inform regional and national air quality policy

The workshop series provides an informal opportunity for presentation of recent results and ongoing projects. Recent workshops have been held in Leipzig, Lille, Valencia and Aachen. The meeting format is a combination of short contributed talks and a poster session, alongside a social programme / facility visit opportunity.
