Theme: Environmental Aerosols
Start date: Cohort 1: 2019
Supervisors: Prof Andrew Orr-Ewing (Bristol) and Dr Adam Squires (Bath)
The contribution of organic aerosol to the warming of the Earth’s atmosphere remains uncertain because particle composition and morphology affect the absorption of sunlight. Using a recently developed spectroscopic apparatus, this project will measure precise optical properties of single, trapped aerosol particles.
