Topics and lecturers change slightly on an annual basis. This year’s topics will include: Oxidation chemistry; Nighttime chemistry; Surface-atmosphere exchange and flux measurements; Box modelling with the Master Chemical Mechanism – a user’s perspective; Quantification of volcanic gas emission by optical spectroscopy - how and why; Use of stable isotope ratios; atmospheric removal processes; Glaciers; Planetary science; Atmospheric modelling; Mixing, emissions, and uptake within forest canopies; Aerosols; Global measurements; Satellite remote sensing of air quality: Methods and insight.

Lectures will be delivered by 15 professional scientists with expertise in the above topics. Click here to see the schedule of lecturers for 2016.

Who for?: Industrial and government scientists who wish to develop a more integrated understanding of the physics & chemistry of the atmosphere, and emerging issues of atmospheric importance. Those charged with duties of environmental reporting and compliance should especially attend. This course is co-offered to graduate students as part of the NSERC CREATE Program: Integrating Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics from Earth to Space (IACPES)

An invitation is required to register for the event. A password which is required will be sent with an invitation. If you are interested in this course send an email to requesting an invitation to be sent to you. York University will invoice the participant.
