Atmospheric Nanoparticles, Air Quality and Climate Change

Prof. S. N. Pandis,  invited by The Cyprus Institute underlined in his talk the negative impacts of the sub-micrometer (fine) particles in human health and the climate. The mass of these fine particles has increased by one, to sometimes two orders of magnitude over populated areas in the Northern Hemisphere, due to anthropogenic activities.  He also emphasised in the role of experimental techniques and theoretical tools in atmospheric aerosol science in order to gain a predictive understanding of the physical and chemical processes that govern the dynamics, size, and chemical composition of atmospheric aerosols.

The main goals of the PRECEPT project, one of which is to increase the spatial and temporal resolution of aerosol observations  were presented to Prof. Pandis,  during the event.
