Specific programme outline
Nucleation Theory & Experiment
Studies of homogeneous, heterogeneous and ion induced nucleation including single or multicomponent system cluster formation and properties, condensation and evaporation, and experimental, theoretical and computational investigations.
Tropospheric & Stratospheric Aerosols
Fundamental processes associated with tropospheric and stratospheric aerosols, especially related to global warming, acid rain, air quality and multi-phase chemistry. Studies into aerosol concentrations and distributions, variability and long term trends. Focus on composition, hygroscopicity, thermodynamics, phase changes, physico-chemical properties, and optical properties.
Cloud Drop and Ice Nucleation
Fundamental processes related to droplet and ice-crystal activation, growth, cloud condensation nuclei and ice nuclei origin, composition, spatial and temporal distributions and loadings, experimental and theoretical studies.
Direct and indirect effects of atmospheric aerosols on radiative forcing and climate, remote sensing and regional to global scale climate modelling of aerosol impacts and feedback systems.
The final programme will be published after the closing deadline for abstract submission.
