Workshop Details
Organic Particles in the Atmosphere: Formation, Properties, Processing, and Impact
08/04/2008 - 08/08/2008
Meeting Description:

The Telluride Summer Research Workshops are small (fewer than 25 people) and therefore provide an opportunity for participants to meet and discuss current research in detail, stimulate new ideas, and generate collaborations. It is our hope that participants will take advantage of the informal nature of the workshop to speculate, think out loud, or otherwise air ideas that are perhaps in their infancy. The participants in this workshop will all share a combined interest in understanding organic particles and their implications for the atmosphere. The target list of topics that will be covered at the workshop include: chemical composition, mixing state, hygroscopic properties and CCN activity, optical properties, heterogeneous chemistry and processing (aging), secondary organic aerosol formation, nucleation and new particle formation, instrumentation and applications, source apportionment, laboratory, regional, and global scale modeling.


FYI some general info about housing:
TSRC offers a wide range of lodging options. Single bedroom
accommodations with kitchen start at $675/week, and 2- and 3-bedroom condos start at $970 and $1160/week,
respectively. Some condos have 2 beds per bedroom, or also have a loft, which may be a good option for students and postdocs or anyone looking to save money. Condos range from Basic or Value to Luxury depending upon your preferences. TSRC also offers excellent hotel rooms through Camel's Garden Hotel and Ice House, with daily maid-service and other hotel style amenities.

If you wish to share a condo with one or more other TSRC participants, you should work this out in advance of registering. In particular, one person should be designated as the head roommate. The person chosen head
roommate must register first as the head roommate. Then the other roommates register, indicating the name of the head roommate. If you need email addresses of the other participants, your workshop or
