Physics Department Seminar

Date: Thu. 2 Feb, 2017 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Duration: 1 Hour
Location: Workman Center

Elham Baranizadeh, the University of Eastern Finland and Stockholm University, is the guest speaker for the Physics Department colloquium. Her talk is titled "Data Analysis and Regional-Scale Modeling of Atmospheric Aerosols in Europe." Atmospheric aerosols produced from gas-to-particle conversion process are relevant in climate change and human health. Particles grown from new-particle formation (NPF; i.e. nucleation and subsequent growth of nucleated particles) can directly affect climate by absorbing or scattering the incoming solar radiation, or indirectly by acting as cloud condensation nuclei. Baranizadeh's research focuses on better understanding, predicting, and estimating the new-particle formation events and their characteristics. In particular, she investigates the cloudiness and radiation level effect on NPF occurrence. 4 p.m. in Workman 101.
