Background and Objectives

Atmospheric aerosols play critical roles in air pollution and climate change. There are growing evidences that heterogeneous reactions on the surface of aerosol particles and the reactions in the liquid phase could have significant implications in the impacts of aerosols on air quality and climate change. However, the evidences about the heterogeneous kinetics related to atmospheric aerosols based on field observation, laboratory studies, and model simulation are not yet fully consistent. The objectives of this series of the workshops are to exchange the most recent findings in the areas of the heterogeneous kinetics related to atmospheric aerosols, to identify the gaps in the understanding of the roles of atmospheric aerosols on air pollution and climate change, and to discuss future research priorities and collaborations. The first workshop was held in August 9-10, 2015, Beijing, China.
