Air Quality in China

Filder analysis
Natural aersol compounds from filter analyses of high volume sampler in Beijing
NO2 from MCCM simulation
Air quality simulation for China with MCCM


Regional atmospheric pollution in Beijing and its surrounding areas is investigated in a joint project with the Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (Prof Y. Wang) and KIT's Institute of Mineralogy and Geochemistry (PD Dr. S. Norra).
