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 […]
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 […]
Cora was in Colorado last week to participate in an indoor air chemistry workshop. The workshop was funded by the Sloan Foundation and hosted by the wonderful Prof. Delphine Farmer at Colorado State University. While in the neighbourhood, Cora also visited NOAA in Boulder, where she gave a seminar and collected new brown carbon samples […]
Cora was in Toronto last week to give invited seminars at the University of Toronto and Environment and Climate Change Canada. She spoke about Rob’s brown carbon work and Rob even attended one seminar in the flesh!
Rob successfully defended his thesis this week. Congratulations Dr. Di Lorenzo!
Last week was a busy one for the group! Joseph and Kathryn travelled to Mount St Vincent University for this year’s Science Atlantic ChemCon meeting. A couple days later, most of the rest of the group (including Kat!) joined them in Halifax for the 99th Canadian Society of Chemistry meeting. After a week of excellent […]
Rob’s work on brown carbon collected from an aged boreal biomass burning plume has been published in Geophysical Research Letters . We collected samples of the plume from a fire burning in northern Quebec and Labrador as it came over St. John’s in summer of 2013 (satellite photo). Rob used size-exclusion chromatography coupled to UV-vis […]
Cora was in beautiful Antigonish, Nova Scotia this week to visit St. Francis Xavier University. She presented work from the group as part of the Department of Earth Sciences and NSERC CREATE Seminar Series.
Cora attended the Gordon Research Conference focusing on atmospheric chemistry held in Waterville Valley, NH last week. She presented Rob’s biomass burning brown carbon analysis.
Cora and CJY Group alumna Rachel Hems were in Canada’s capital this past week at the CSC’s annual conference. Rachel presented the amino sugars analysis project that she initiated while in the group last summer and Cora presented Rob’s brown carbon analysis.
