on Nucleation and Atmospheric Aerosols brings together
scientists covering the following subject areas:
Theory & Experiment: Studies of homogeneous,
heterogeneous and ion induced nucleation including single
or multicomponent system cluster formation and
properties, condensation, and evaporation,
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.
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.
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
