IGAC has a strong focus on engaging the next generation of atmospheric scientists through its early career program.  These scientists join an international network early in their career that creates relationships that facilitate atmospheric chemistry research at an international level for years to come.

IGAC cultivates the next generation of scientists by:

Hiroshi Tanimoto is the Head of Global Atmospheric Chemistry Section at National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES) in Tsukuba, Japan. He received his PhD in Chemistry from The University of Tokyo in 2001 and was a visiting scholar at Harvard University during 2007–2008. Dr. Tanimoto has been working in the field of atmospheric composition in Asia and Oceania regions.

Mark Lawrence is a scientific director of the cluster “Sustainable Interactions With the Atmosphere” (SIWA) at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS, www.iass-potsdam.de) in Potsdam, Germany.

Overarching Objective:

Develop and implement a global air pollution monitoring, analysis, and prediction system for air quality with downscaling capability in regions of the world affected by high levels of atmospheric pollutants, in particular Asia, Latin America, and Africa.
