Title: An Atmospheric Aerosol Short Course for Early Career Scientists

Abstract

The first Department of Energy (DOE) Environmental and Molecular Science Laboratory (EMSL)/Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) aerosol summer school was held July 15-19, 2019 at the EMSL user facility located at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. The school set out to provide graduate students and early-career scientists an overview of atmospheric aerosol science and an introduction to the measurement techniques available through the EMSL and ARM user facilities to address current aerosol science issues. Instructors for the course were drawn from scientists from the EMSL (Laskin et al., 2016; China et al., 2018) and ARM facilities (McComiskey and Ferrare, 2016) as well as from the DOE Atmospheric System Research (ASR) program. Student support for the summer school was also jointly provided by EMSL, ARM, and ASR. The school spanned five days with each day covering a particular theme. 25 students from 21 institutions attended morning lectures on aerosol composition, properties, theory, measurements, and modeling. During afternoons, the students explored instruments that collect and analyze aerosol samples at EMSL and PNNL’s Atmospheric Measurements Laboratory. They also tested relevant computer modeling simulations and learned about NWChem, EMSL’s open-source computational chemistry software suite.
