Session 1 Regional Scale Air Quality -Part I

Monday, 23 January 2017: 1:30 PM-2:30 PM
4C-3 (Washington State Convention Center )
Host: 19th Conference on Atmospheric Chemistry
Jeffrey L. Collett Jr., Colorado State Univ., Atmospheric Science Department, Fort Collins, CO and Shaocai Yu, Zhejiang Univ., Key Laboratory of Environmental Remediation and Ecological Health, Ministry of Education, Zhejiang

Variations in meteorology and climate couple with a range of source types and source activity levels to yield a wide range of regional scale air quality challenges around the globe. This session solicits reports from both observational and modeling perspectives on air pollution in different regions within North America and around the globe. Presentations focusing on improving air quality and air quality challenges are both welcome. Relevant air quality issues include, but are not limited to, ozone, fine particles, smoke from wild and prescribed fires, visibility and regional haze, and reactive nitrogen deposition.
