A New Hypothesis to Explain the Formation of Haze Events in China involving Charged Particles in the Atmosphere, November 2015 – January 2016

This study is led by Professor Zhaolin Gu and Professor Yan Chen from the Xian Jiaotong University (XJU) in Xian, in collaboration with the Chinese Research Academy of Environmental Sciences (CRAES) in Beijing and the International Laboratory for Air Quality and Health (ILAQH), Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane, Australia. The team is working on a new hypothesis to explain the formation of haze events in China involving charged particles in the atmosphere. The ILAQH will provide for this project, charged particle data from ILAQH/CRAES Neutral Cluster and Air Ion Spectrometer (NAIS) measurements conducted in Beijing, for the modelling studies that are presently on-going. There are plans to take QUT’s NAIS to Xian in the middle of 2017 to collect more data. A research paper is in preparation.


中国涉及大气中带电粒子雾霾事件形成的新假说解释201511 – 20161

本研究由北京西安交通大学(XJU)的赵兆林教授和陈燕教授领导,与中国北京的环境科学研究院(CRAES)和国际空气质量与健康实验室(ILAQH)合作。 该团队正在研究一个新的假说,以解释中国的雾霾事件的形成,涉及大气中的带电粒子。 ILAQH将为该项目提供在北京进行的ILAQH / CRAES中性簇和空气离子光谱仪(NAIS)测量的带电粒子数据,用于目前正在进行的建模研究。 有计划在2017年中旬将QUT的NAIS应用于西安,以收集更多数据。 研究论文正在准备中。
