About the Environmental Science Colloquium Series (ECo-Series)

The ECo-Series provides a forum for discussing scientific issues of societal relevance, sharing new and innovative techniques, and for interacting with other scientists, stakeholders and policy makers. Our aim is to provide entertaining, educational, and provocative events which foster discussion and creativity both within and outside of the Department.

Unmasking the effects of aerosols on greenhouse warming in Europe

Co-emission of aerosols and greenhouse gases is highly attributed to man-made activities, while the corresponding radiative forcing appears very differently. The global radiative forcing from the greenhouse gases (positive) has increased substantially since 1980, while relatively small changes are found in the radiative forcing (negative) from the aerosols. The large differences in the atmospheric lifetime of the climate drivers in …

PFAS Characterisation by FTICR-MS

Silvia Dudasova is part of the PERFORCE3 project on PFAS. Currently she is visiting ACES for a 4 weeks secondment, and we welcome the opportunity to learn about her research. In her presentation she will introduce the techniques she uses to characterise PFAS in biological and environmental samples, and focus mainly on the approaches used in suspect and non-targeted analysis.

Aerosol Mass Spectrometry Measurements for Essential Climate and Air Pollution Variables

Aerosol plays a significant role in climate, air quality and human health, which makes it one of the most important and studied components in the atmosphere, nevertheless, its effects are still poorly quantified. A significant improvement has been made with an introduction of an Aerosol Mass Spectrometer (AMS), which proved to be a powerful tool for studying the aerosol effects. …
