Cora attended and presented at the Canada-China Forum on Smog and Haze: From Science to Solutions last week. The event was hosted by the Southern Ontario Centre for Atmospheric Aerosol Research at the University of Toronto and featured prominent air quality scientists from Canada and China.
Cora and Trevor travelled to Syracuse, NY this week to work on a collaborative project with the brilliant and lovely Tara Kahan. Cora also gave a talk and was treated to a tour of the Syracuse University campus.
Group members presented at the annual symposium hosted by the NSERC CREATE Training Program for Integrating Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics from Earth to Space (IACPES) in Toronto this week. Cora was the Plenary Speaker, and presentations on CJY Group research were given by Heidi and Joseph. We also took the opportunity to have a group […]
The group will soon have new optical instruments that can be used to understand the atmospheric reactive chlorine budget! Cora received a Research, Tools, and Infrastructure (RTI) grant from the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) Canada. See the full NSERC RTI funding announcement for 2017 here.
Our recent paper in Environmental Science: Processes and Impacts on the transport of perfluoroalkyl acids to the Arctic has been named as a “HOT article” of 2017! See the list of hot articles here.
Some of the group travelled to Toronto last week for the 100th CSC conference. Cora presented Rob’s ultra-high resolution mass spectral analysis of biomass burning aerosol and Heidi’s analysis of deposition of perfluorocarboxylic acids to the Canadian Arctic. Trevor also presented work from the group: Bryan’s nitric acid measurements from the NL-BELT and Rob and […]
Courtney, Melanie, Peter, and Victoria submitted their Honours theses last week. Each of them undertook a challenging project and made the group proud with their work! We wish them the best as they move on to the next stage of their education–Courtney, Mel, and Vic to MSc programs and Peter to BEd. Congratulations and good […]
Courtney is the 2017 recipient of the Chemical Institute of Canada Analytical Chemistry Undergraduate Student Travel Award! This award will fund Courtney’s travel to the 100th Canadian Chemistry Conference and Exhibition in Toronto to present her research. Congratulations!
Work from Rob’s doctoral thesis examining brown carbon in aerosols from multiple field sites has been published in Environmental Science and Technology. This paper allows us to better understand the molecular size distribution and sources of aerosol brown carbon and its potential impact on climate. We undertook this study with collaborators from National Oceanic and […]
Work from the group looking at perfluoroalkyl substances from a snow pit on Devon Island has been published in Environmental Science: Processes and Impacts. This unique sample set allows us to better understand the long-range transport and temporal trends of deposition to the Canadian High Arctic. The paper is featured in the Emerging Investigator Series […]
