The International Conference on Aerosol Cycle – Sources, Aging, Sinks, Impacts - is a 3 days program dedicated to the broad and interdisciplinary scientific community in physics and chemistry of the atmosphere.

ICAC 2017 will take place from March 21st to March 23rd 2017 on the campus of the University of Lille. (North of France). It will be hosted by the conference center LILLIAD - Learning center Innovation.

The Labex CaPPA is pleased to launch the first edition of this conference on aerosol cycle.
It aims at strengthening interdisciplinary interactions and collaborations between an expanded scientific community at the highest level.



ICAC 2017 is organized in 5 sessions with the following plenary speakers :

Session 1: Observation
Paolo LAJ

Laboratoire de Glaciologie et Géophysique de l’Environnement (LGGE), Université Grenoble Alpes, Grenoble, France
What have we learned from a decade of near-surface aerosol observations ?

NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA, United States of America

NASA satellite observations of aerosol properties: from climate to air quality.

Session 2: Modeling
Division of Atmospheric Sciences at the Department of Physics, University of Helsinki, Finland
Atmospheric new particle formation : From molecular to global scale.

Session 3: Physico-chemical properties
Atmospheric Chemistry Department, Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research (TROPOS), Leipzig, Germany
Aerosol particle organic mass formation: HOMs uptake and cloud processing.

Session 4: Reactivity of aerosols and their precursors
Institute of Energy and Climate Research IEK-8: Troposphere, Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany
Biogenic contributions to organic aerosol and their link to anthropogenic emissions.

Session 5: Climate and Impacts
Departments of Chemistry and Atmospheric Science, Colorado State University, CO, United States of America
Aerosols in the atmosphere: Their impact on composition, radiation, and health.

Workshop (1h) : VIIRS Dark Target Aerosol Product
NASA/GSFC, Science Systems and Applications INC

Introduction to the VIIRS-DT aerosol product for users already familiar with MODIS-DT : similarities and known differences between the two products, tools that can be used to analyze both.
