We are very excited to see everybody at AAAR and make sure to swing by the booth to learn about our current and upcoming employment opportunities. Don’t forget to tag us on twitter @AerodyneRes!

* We invite everyone to participate in a meeting to discuss future collaborative studies with the Atmospheric Science and Chemistry mEasurement NeTwork (ASCENT). ASCENT is a new comprehensive, high time-resolution, long-term monitoring network in the U.S. for characterization of aerosol chemical composition and physical properties. Leveraging existing networks, a total of 12 sites will be established across the country, including rural/remote/background, urban, and tribal sites. Each site will be equipped with a suite of advanced aerosol instrumentation for real-time measurements of fine aerosol chemical composition and properties: Aerosol Chemical Speciation Monitor (ACSM, non-refractory aerosols), Xact (trace metals), Aethalometer (black/brown carbon), and Scanning Mobility Particle Sizer (SMPS, aerosol number size distribution and concentration). A comprehensive publicly-accessible database will also be developed. You can follow ASCENT Twitter for our latest activities.
