Presentations from previous air quality workshops

An Introduction to Ambient Aerosol Science, 12 June 2015

A half day workshop entitled An Introduction to Ambient Aerosol Science was held at NIWA Auckland on Friday 12 June 2015. At this seminar, the NIWA team gave a series of presentations on basic aerosol science including the formation, transformation and removal processes of particles in the atmosphere, their properties, behaviour and effects, as well as some of the many different ways of characterising particles and the information that can be gleaned from them.

Population Exposure to Air Pollution

The National Environmental Standards (NES) came into effect on 1 September 2005. This legislation has large and far-reaching implications for resource managers, resource users and air quality scientists. The Air Quality standards apply in the open, everywhere where people may be exposed and require monitoring to be carried out where the standards are most likely to be breached. So, how do you assess where the standards are most likely to be breached and where to carry out monitoring?

Workshop: 10 November 2006

A workshop was held at NIWA Auckland on Friday 10th November 2006. The aim of this workshop was to inform and assist councils on how to:

  1. Assess Population Exposure to Air Pollution.
  2. Identify hot spots where screening and standard method air quality monitoring may need to be undertaken.
