Within this session results from the frontline of atmospheric mechanism and properties research using atmospheric simulation chamber will be presented and discussed. This includes research about evolution and chemical characterization of gas- and particle-phase products of VOC oxidation, SOA formation and growth from biogenic and anthropogenic sources, multiphase chemistry, chemical and physical transformation of soot, mineral dust or bioaerosol or evolution and aging of biomass burning emission.
The evaluation of the impact of these processes on aerosol optical properties, particle hygroscopicity and CCN activity, ice nucleation activity as well as on pollutants toxicity, health effects or cultural heritage are highly welcome.
Works involving new and/or improved instrumentation as well as refined protocols and their combination with models will also be presented with a special emphasis.
The session is organized by EUROCHAMP-2020 and is widely open for all that are interested.
