|1||2nd Technical Workshop & SASS Training||
The second technical workshop of the national consortium project NCAP-COALESCE (Carbonaceous aerosol emissions, Source apportionment and Climate Impacts) will be coordinated and hosted by IISER Bhopal between 03 and 13 June, 2018. Over 70 participants from institutions including several IITs, IISERs, Universities, and CSIR labs will attend the workshop which includes technical sessions and instrument training sessions.
The NCAP-COALESCE project is envisaged to further our understanding of the sources, fate and impacts of carbonaceous aerosols, on climate and air quality, in the Indian region, through interdisciplinary research. NCAP is a Ministry of Environment and Forests - Climate Change (MoEFCC) funded 5 year consortium project led by IIT Bombay with 18 institutions from all over the country.
IISER Bhopal is an Associate Institute and along with IIT Kanpur will lead Work Packet-2 of the NCAP-COALESCE. We will be coordinating field sampling of ambient aerosols, their chemical characterization and source apportionment to understand regional carbonaceous aerosol abundance, seasonality, sources and their contributions over all of India.
