With more than 30 oral contributions and three plenary sessions for panel discussions and being interactively followed by web conference, TEAM-3 provided an ideal opportunity for the scientific update and discussion of the project EMeRGe and related activities.
During the three days of the workshop more than 50 scientists from Italy, France, United Kingdom, Thailand, Taiwan, Japan, China, Philippines and Germany, participated in the discussions which will serve as a basis for future lines of investigation and cooperation.
The third topical workshop "Transport and transformation of pollutants from European and Asian Major population centres: TEAM-3" will be organised and hosted by the Institute of Environmental Physics at the University of Bremen on the 12th - 14th February 2019.
TEAM-3 offers a great opportunity to present aspects of the analysis of scientific interest, and to coordinate and motivate joint publications between experimentalists and modellers while minimising duplications or undesired overlapping.
The structure of the meeting had been slightly modified respect to previous TEAM workshops and some time slots had been allocated for the presentation and proposal of rollout papers on trace gases, aerosols, meteorology and modelling for both EMeRGe phases in Europe and Asia. Similarly there is time planned for the detailed discussion of the FAAM-HALO intercomparison exercise.
The third topical workshop Transport and transformation of pollutants from European and Asian Major population centres - part 3: TEAM-3" will be organised and hosted by the Institute of Environmental Physics at the University of Bremen on the 12th - 14th February 2019.
Excerpt of an online article:
"(...) At the event 'Taking a deep breath in five world metropolises!' (...) the scientific explanations by Dr. Maria Dolores Andrés Hernández on the research project EMeRGe gave the appropriate framework for an intensive examination of the topic. At the Institute of Environmental Physics of the University of Bremen, the project is under the direction of Prof. Dr. Burrows and uses a state-of-the-art research aircraft of the German Aerospace Center to measure the air pollution in several mega-cities worldwide. (...) It is clear that emissions that have once reached the atmosphere have an impact - be it locally or in other regions reached by air currents. (...)"
EMeRGe will be presented in the framework of the special exhibition at the Klimahaus in Bremerhaven with the talk "Erkenntnisse aus dem Forschungsprojekt EMeRGe" ("Findings from the research project EMeRGe").
In the exibition "Pollution Pods" it is possible to get the typical smells from five cities: Beijing, New Delhi, Sao Paolo, London and Trondheim. In a few steps you can walk from dry, cold to hot and humid places.
The effect of releasing toxic emissions on air quality and on the health of people and how this also contributes to climate change, will be presented on Tuesday, 27. November 2018 from 14:00 - 16:00 at the Klimahaus Bremerhaven
Prof. Burrows joined an EMeRGe workshop in the Republic of Korea. The team reported on airborne (King Air) and ground based measurements in South Korea and their satellite data products made for EMeRGe.
