SIO 209: Organic Aerosols in the Atmosphere
Instructor: Lynn Russell
Student Coordinator: Lelia Hawkins
Seminar Course (1 Credit)
Fall 2009 Fridays 4:00 - 5:00 pm NH 327
- Course Topics: The topics covered in this seminar course are based on current research in organic aerosol
chemistry. Students will be expected to give one 30-40 minute presentation on their current
research with emphasis on literature comparisons in order to demonstrate the relevance of the
new knowledge or understanding, as it pertains to organic aerosol sources and transformations.
The course will also include seminars by UCSD researchers and world experts, including one
speaker invited by the class. Presenters will expect participants to be familiar with organic and
inorganic chemistry, aerosol-cloud interactions, and the current literature. Attendance at
seminars is mandatory since missing a class can result in a lowered participation grade and
missing a presentation relevant to one’s own presentation.
- Objectives: This course will teach skills for evaluating new research in the context of previous literature.
