Aerosol Characteristics and Chemistry

Aerosol Characteristics and Chemistry

Aerosol properties undergo rapid fluctuations due to changes in meteorological conditions, and contact with other airborne pollutants - influences that vary with time and location. Studies in this area are developing and applying new methodologies to evaluate the chemical and physical characteristics of aerosols, as well as aiming to determine spatiotemporal trends of aerosol sources, size, composition, and concentration. Mechanisms of aerosol formation and transportation are also being examined. An understanding of mechanisms underlying spatiotemporal changes in the physical and chemical characteristics of aerosols is a key link needed to relate aerosol emissions to their environmental and health impacts.
