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 […]
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 […]
Cora was in Gent, Belgium last week to participate in the Interaction Between Indoor and Atmospheric Chemistry Workshop and attend the Indoor Air 2016 meeting. She presented Kat’s work on PBDEs in size-resolved particles indoors.
Joseph travelled to Toronto last week to participate in the Brominated Flame Retardants 2016 meeting held at the University of Toronto. Joseph presented his analytical method development for new BFR-related compounds, as well as his detection of these compounds in the environment.
Congratulations to our fearless leader, Prof. Cora Young, for receiving a sizable portion of the $3.7 million awarded to MUN faculty as part of the Research and Development Corporation (RDC) Newfoundland & Labrador. Cora received funding to do some size-resolved aerosol sampling with our fantastic nanoMOUDI. From Meagan Whelan, “The research is being conducted in […]
One of the largest forest fires in Canadian recorded history has been burning in Labrador and Northern Quebec (photo). On the weekend of July 6, St. John’s was inundated with the plume from the fires. NASA satellites show photos of the event, with smoke over eastern Newfoundland on July 6. Smoke from the fire was […]
Kat joins us for the summer before starting her Master’s of Environmental Science in the fall. Welcome!
Last week, we finally got everything together to fire up our brand new Micro Orifice Uniform Deposit Impactor (NanoMOUDI II Model 122) from MSP Corp. We were a little apprehensive to turn it on at this point, because it is powered by a 200lb vacuum pump that we believed would take down the building if […]
