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 […]
During the week of September 21, the group was very busy! Rob, John, Heidi, and Cora attended the 11th Annual Workshop on LC-MS-MS Applications in Environmental Analysis and Food Safety. The event was hosted by Environment Canada in Burlington, ON. Rob presented a new analytical method for amino sugars analysis and was awarded the first […]
Bryan Place joined the group recently from the University of Toronto. He will be working jointly with Cora and Trevor looking at deposition of reactive nitrogen species across the NL-BELT sites. Welcome!
A new paper from the talented Pete Edwards demonstrates that unusual wintertime ozone events in fracking areas can be explained by the increased albedo from snowpack and the increased concentrations of volatile organic compounds in the stable layer found over the snow. The results are published online in Nature and have been widely covered in […]
Research from Cora’s postdoctoral work involving methods to identify the importance of chlorine as a primary radical is (finally) published today in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics. http://www.atmos-chem-phys.net/14/3427/2014/acp-14-3427-2014.html
