IGACs’ biennial open science conferences are the primary mechanism for dissemination of scientific information across the atmospheric chemist community. The theme of the 2012 IGAC conference is “Atmospheric Chemistry in the Anthropocene”.

The International Global Atmospheric Chemistry (IGAC) was formed in 1990 to address growing international concern over rapid changes observed in the Earth’s atmosphere.

IGAC is a Core Project under the umbrella of the International Geosphere Biosphere Programme (IGBP) and co-sponsored by the international Commission on Atmospheric Composition and Global Pollution (iCACGP).

Conference Sessions:

Atmospheric Chemistry in the Anthropocene

Observations and assessments of atmospheric compositional change including emissions, trends, distributions, and losses of gases and aerosols, scientific knowledge and uncertainties, and geoengineering.

Atmospheric Chemistry and Megacities

Emission trends and scenarios, secondary pollution formation, source apportionment, process analysis, air quality forecasting, policy implications, and evaluating connections to urban, regional, continental and global scale atmospheric chemistry.

Atmospheric Chemistry and Climate

Greenhouse gases, stratospheric ozone, aerosols, clouds, precipitation, their interactions and feedback effects in the climate system, potential interactions of air pollution control and climate, and prospective on Earths future.

Atmospheric Chemistry and Health

Local to global observations, modeling, and epidemiology, connecting emissions, atmospheric chemistry, and human health impacts.

Atmospheric Chemistry and Surface-Atmosphere Exchange

Exchange between the atmosphere and the biosphere, ocean, and cryosphere, including atmospheric chemistry near these interfaces.

Atmospheric Chemistry Fundamentals

Chemical kinetics of gaseous and aerosol phases, chamber experiments, photochemical mechanisms, measurement technique development, gas/particle interactions, anthropogenic/biogenic interactions, and connections to observations.
