Aerosol Measurement School

This short course in practical aerosol science aims to deliver an introductory understanding of the challenges faced with aerosol measurements. Sampling ambient particles can be extremely challenging and answering a simple question like 'how big is the particle' depends on what instrument was used to measure it. The course will be split between lectures on the theory and application of aerosol measurements and techniques and practical, hands on demonstrations in a laboratory. The goal of the course is to provide a theoretical understanding of aerosol properties, examples of how these properties are measured and hands on experience in aerosol measurements.

Atmospheric Measurement Summer School

This is 12 day hands-on course for PhD and early career researchers to learn the fundamentals of atmospheric fieldwork on the remote Isle of Arran, Scotland.

Our comprehensive programme will challenge you to:

  • use synoptic charts and other data to give daily weather forecasts
  • profile the atmosphere using radiosondes and surface measurements on a mountain
  • log data and work with instruments in remote locations
  • investigate atmospheric trace gases and aerosols
