With climate issues looming around us, understanding the atmospheric process from the molecular level to the ultrafine particle level is gaining interest. We gathered specialists in Taiwan and Japan to tell us about the frontiers of this field on Monday, February 6 afternoon (13:30-17:00) at C. T. Chang Memorial Hall (4F) at the Institute of Atomic and Molecular Sciences, Academia Sinica.
We start with an opening lecture by Prof. Hajime Akimoto (National Institute for Environmental Studies of Japan) concerning climate change and chemistry. Prof. Hui-Ming Hung (National Taiwan University) and Prof. Chia Chen Wang (National Sun Yat-sen University) will discuss the details of aerosol growth. In the next talk, Dr. Pei-Ling Luo (Academia Sinica) will tell us about the detection of reactive species using dual-comb spectroscopy. Dr. Jim Lin (Academia Sinica) will present his endeavor in developing an oxidation reactor. In the closing talk, Prof. Ta-Chih Hsiao (National Taiwan University) will present his studies of on the detection of ultrafine particles in Taipei and its relation to human health.
