Gas-phase oxidative chemistry of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) via HOx (OH+HO2), ozone, and NO3 is central to tropospheric ozone and secondary organic aerosol (SOA) production. SOA and ozone both affect human health and influence climate. Recent work is providing new insights into important details of this chemistry, such as discrepancies in the HOx budget and the production of higher-generation VOC oxidation products. Understanding the HOx budget and the details of the formation of higher-generation oxygenated VOCs is important, as usually multiple oxidation steps are necessary to reduce the volatility of VOCs enough to form SOA, and as all oxidation steps contribute to ozone production. There has been substantial progress in a more complete mechanistic understanding of VOC oxidation, in particular for isoprene, both from theoretical and modeling studies, as well as from field and laboratory experiments. The meeting will aim at presenting a comprehensive review of the state-of-the-art of gas phase atmospheric chemistry. It will also address outstanding questions and will include discussions of areas for future research.
The workshop registration fee includes a continental breakfast each morning as well as an all-TSRC BBQ on Wednesday evening.
We wish to ensure an intimate workshop setting, with no more than 20 to 25 participants. If you are interested in attending, but have not received an invitation, please contact the workshop organizer before registering.
TSRC is about expanding the frontiers of science, exploring new ideas, and building collaborations. The workshop schedule will allow for substantial unstructured time for participants to talk and think. All participants are expected to stay for the entire duration of the workshop.
Scientists are encouraged to consider bringing family or friends.Telluride offers a number of options for children's camps (including Telluride Academy, Ah Haa School for the Arts, and Pinhead Institute). There is more information on childcare, camps, and family activities on TSRC's website at https://www.telluridescience.org/travel/families. Please contact Cindy Fusting at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
