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.

Recurring South Asian smog episodes: Call for regional cooperation and improved monitoring

• South Asia stands out globally for fine particle pollution.
• The precise nature, sources, and potential transboundary impacts of air pollutants have been understudied in South Asia.
• Imbalanced AQ monitoring capacity is an impediment to regional cooperation that is critical in addressing air pollution.
• Revitalization of the Mal ́e Declaration would be one way to make progress.

Countries of the Indo-Gangetic Plain must unite against air pollution

The Quadrennial Ozone Symposium Organizing Committee is pleased to announce the dates and location of QOS 2024. The meeting will be held in-person in Boulder, Colorado, USA from 15-19 July 2024, and hosted by the University of Colorado Boulder with a hybrid virtual option. We are excited to follow in the footsteps of a wonderful QOS 2021 graciously hosted online by Yonsei University, Korea.

Zoom registration information coming soon

What is Allin Wayra?

Allin-Wayra, which can be interpreted as “good air” or “winds of change” in Quechua (Runasimi, or "people's language") a pre-colonial South American native tongue, is the new IGAC Activity on small sensors. 

Motivation (Why do we want to do it?)

Katerina Sindelarova is a researcher at the Department of Atmospheric Physics at Charles University in Prague studying volatile organic compounds from biogenic sources (BVOCs). Her main research interests are modelling BVOC emissions from vegetation, influence of input parameters on emissions, comparison of different modelling approaches and impact of BVOCs on local and global atmospheric chemistry. She is a member of the Scientific Steering Committee of GEIA (Global Emission InitiAtive).
