EMME-CARE Autumn School “Analysis of aerosols, air pollution and their sources in the Eastern Mediterranean” successfully concluded
The 1st EMME-CARE Autumn School “Analysis of aerosols, air pollution and their sources in the Eastern Mediterranean” held from 31 Oct–11 Nov, 2022, has been concluded with great success!
The Autumn School took place at The Cyprus Institute’s premises in Nicosia, Cyprus and was organized by the EMME-CARE Consortium, with the support of the CyI Graduate School. It was attended by 18 students, from 7 different countries, including 2 students from countries in the Middle East.
The main aim of the Autumn School was to focus on the analysis of aerosol, greenhouse gas and air pollution data based on the long-term datasets gathered at the stations of the Cyprus Atmospheric Observatory (CAO) and other available data sets from the Eastern Mediterranean, including few short relevant lectures, giving emphasis on group work with the support of the teachers. Within this framework, the students were divided into small groups, each one having specific research questions related to the course topic. The students analyzed relevant data and at the end, they delivered a PowerPoint presentation about their analysis outcome and they submitted a written report.
The course has been organized in collaboration with the Institute for Atmospheric and Earth System Research INAR, of the University of Helsinki, the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry (MPIC) and the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA). The Autumn School was also organized within the framework of the Horizon Europe project Edu4Climate.
