Links Between Air Pollution and Climate Change - T110

Friday 9th January 2015

14:00 - 15:00

Location : Henley, G10

Speakers

  1. Dr Nicolas Bellouin - Department of Meteorology, University of Reading

Climate change is often described as resulting from increases in carbon dioxide alone, but is in fact the result of the competition between the warming caused by greenhouse gases and the cooling caused by particles of pollution. In this presentation, we will describe how particles of pollution affect the Earth's climate, and discuss the dilemma of current air quality policy: how to reduce pollution levels without leaving an increasing fraction of greenhouse gas warming unopposed?

Speakers

  1. Dr David Ward - Greater Manchester STEM Centre

We'd like to share a range of simple activities that we offer schools and Science Clubs in the North of England. We offer a number of practical sessions that have as their basis 'Things that Move'. Some are our own contraptions - others are value for money commercial kits. In our session participants will make two models and take two others home - to make at their leisure. Looking for ideas to get you on the move - in lessons or clubs we have the start point to move you forward.
