Combustion aerosols: A complex story of air quality and climate

Prof. Rawad Saleh
Chemistry Building, Room 400
Analytical Seminar

Vehicles, power plants, agricultural burning, and forest fires are examples of combustion sources whose particulate emissions – known as particulate matter (PM) or aerosols – have profound yet poorly characterized effects on public health and climate. In this seminar, I will present an overview of the state of science of the environmental impacts of combustion aerosols and highlight some of the knowledge gaps. I will then describe the research in the UGA air quality and climate research laboratory aimed at addressing these gaps, focusing on laboratory experiments that link aerosol physicochemical properties to combustion fundamentals as well as regional modeling efforts to predict the public-health and climate impacts of combustion aerosols over the United States.
