Greetings from Tampere University of Technology

Ilona Riipinen will tell about her stay at Tampere University of Technology, where she spent a month as a visiting professor at the end of the summer. She’ll talk about the work in Tampere, and discuss potential collaborative projects.

The importance of contrail ice formation for mitigating the climate impact of aviation

Aircraft-produced contrail cirrus clouds contribute to anthropogenic climate change. Observational data sets and modelling approaches have become available that clarify formation pathways close to the source aircraft and lead to estimates of the global distribution of their microphysical and optical properties. While contrail cirrus enhance the impact of natural clouds on climate, uncertainties remain regarding their properties and lifecycle. This …

Molecular level impressions – simulations with a focus on atmospheric processes

How can molecular dynamics simulations give insights into microscopic structures and dynamics? I’ll give three examples from past and ongoing projects to advertise simulations and illustrate how they can complement experimental results. The examples will touch upon 1) Ice growth kinetics: the accommodation of vapour molecules into ice surfaces 2) Structures of water at interfaces: promotion or inhibition of ice …

SewAus – Exploiting wastewater to better understand health risks in Australian communities

Wastewater treatment plants are designed to collect waste from populations.  When individuals are exposed to chemicals or pathogens, a fraction of the agent is typically excreted either in its original form or as a metabolite via urine or faeces. Many of these can be identified and quantified in wastewater.   Systematic collection and analysis of wastewater has rapidly evolved to provide …

Multiscale Modeling of Atmospheric Pollution Formation and Feedbacks: Air and Energy Research at the United States EPA

In order to support both robust enforcement of clean air regulations and effective management of air quality in the United States, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency charges scientists in its Office of Research and Development with maintaining a comprehensive atmospheric research program, building tools for air quality analysis, and anticipating future problematic air pollution issues. This seminar will cover a …
