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.

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. …

Identifying Toxicologically Significant Compounds in Environmental Samples using in Vitro Bioassays and High Resolution Mass Spectrometry

High resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) offers the opportunity to use a single analysis to simultaneously measure concentrations of target compounds, screen for suspect compounds against large exact mass and/or MS/MS databases, and to look for unique marker compounds prior to their identification (non-target analysis).  Statistical analysis of aligned nontarget feature abundances against bioassay activity offers a means for prioritizing identification …
