Despite significant improvements, serious air pollution problems still persist worldwide and are becoming more and more complex and varying from one region to another. Science and technologies are required to provide solutions and alternatives. Therefore, a scientifically sound understanding is urgently needed to disclose the key reasons for regional complex air pollution problems and for the effective implementation of control measures.
The emphasis of the present conference will be on air quality improvement and future challenges where the science and new technologies development constitute the backbone for any proposed solutions. The meeting aims at bringing together scientists from different fields (chemistry physics, meteorology, epidemiology,…), industry and representatives of local governments (e.g., cities, regions…), in order to share their recent research progress relating to regional complex air pollution.
The Sino-French Conferences on Atmospheric Environment have been successfully held for four times since 2008 (Beijing, Orléans, Qingdao, Lyon), they have provided the opportunity for fruitful cooperation among interdisciplinary scientists. Three dedicated issues of Journal of Environmental Sciences have been published for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th workshops.
The 5th Sino-French Workshop will be held on October 11-14, 2016 at Xi’an, China, and will address different issues related to air quality improvement and future challenges and provide further forum for exchanging ideas about current research dealing with these issues.
While dedicated to Sino-French cooperation, this conference will be largely opened to participants from other countries, reflecting trans-boundary nature of atmospheric chemistry.
The topics to be addressed are:
·Pollution characteristics of primary and secondary air pollutants;
·Physical, chemical processes and mechanisms of air pollution;
·Eco-environment influence and health effects of air pollutants;
·Climatic effects of air pollutants;
·Source apportionment ofprimary and secondary air pollutants;
·Control techniques of primary air pollutants;
·Control strategy, policy and countermeasures of air pollution.
This conference is hosted by:
XI’AN-MRIEP: Xi'an Municipal Research Institute of Environmental Protection
IEE-CAS: Institute of Earth Environment, Chinese Academy of Sciences
SHX-PAES: Shaanxi Provincial Academy of Environmental Science
XI’AN-JTU-MOE: Xi’an Jiaotong University
