Frontiers in Atmospheric Chemistry Seminar Series

About the Series

The Frontiers in Atmospheric Chemistry Seminar Series is a high profile virtual seminar series. The series was initiated in the Fall 2020, as a means of bringing the atmospheric chemistry community together while travel was restricted due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Though nothing can replace in-person interactions, we hope that this seminar series provides a broad platform for individuals to share scientific results. Speakers are a mix of junior and senior researchers from North America. Seminars are presented “live” on Zoom webinars on Fridays at 10am Pacific / 1pm Eastern. Presenters are encouraged to present unpublished results; as a result recordings or transcripts of talks will not be made available following the webinar (please contact the speaker directly if you would like to obtain a recording of the talk). This series is organized across multiple institutions and anyone in the atmospheric chemistry community is welcome to attend the webinars. Please sign up to the email list if you are interested in receiving announcements. Note that webinar registration is unique for each speaker; emails with registration information are sent on Mondays.
