17 Nov 2023Exploring Particulate Deposition Modelling at the ADMLC Seminar

CERC’s director, Dr David Carruthers, shared his insights into particulate deposition modelling using ADMS at the recent seminar organised by the Atmospheric Dispersion Modelling Liaison Committee (ADMLC) on dry deposition of reactive chemicals. David’s presentation explored the complexities of capturing the impact of spatial and temporal variation on modelled deposition, using a copper deposition dataset in the West Midlands as an example. Deposition is a critical topic that spans the environmental, defence and industrial safety sectors. This seminar brought together experts from these fields to collaborate, share knowledge and discuss approaches to modelling and measuring deposition. Access all the presentations from the day here.

This discussion will be continued in the forthcoming ADMS User Group Meeting, with Dr Victoria Hamilton giving a presentation that focuses on practical deposition model applications. This annual face-to-face meeting provides a great opportunity to learn more about the latest ADMS model advances and provides opportunities to network with other experts in the field – we hope to see you there!


18 Oct 2023Draft agendas now available for the ADMS User Group Meetings, 29-30 November 2023, York

There is still time to book your tickets for the 2023 ADMS User Group Meetings, which will be held at Malmaison York on 29th and 30th November.

Tickets are available to order through Eventbrite until 23:30 on Tuesday 14th November. Organisations with a valid software support contract are entitled to one or more tickets free of charge depending on the type of licence held.


17 Oct 2023CERC sponsor Cambridge Climate and Sustainability Forum (CCSF) event

CERC are proud to be the main sponsor for the 2023 Cambridge Climate and Sustainability Forum (CCSF). This was a University of Cambridge student event organised by Cambridge Hub and also sponsored by Cambridge Zero. This year a one-day forum on Climate Change was held on Sunday 15th October at the Cambridge Union, with over 190 people attending. Topics covered a wide range from Sustainable Growth/degrowth, Activism, Climate Politics and Emerging Technologies. There were break out periods for group discussions, Q&A sessions, as well as time at the end of the day for further dialogue and exchange of ideas. The day was a huge success.


17 Oct 2023CERC sponsor & present at Routes to Clean Air 2023

CERC are once again proud to have sponsored the Institute of Air Quality Management's (IAQM) Routes to Clean Air 2023 conference, held in Manchester on the 10th and 11th of October 2023.

The Routes to Clean Air conferences are annual events, providing a valuable opportunity for professionals in air quality and related fields to share their experiences and innovations for improving air quality. This year featured an excellent selection of talks, with key themes including indoor air quality, and the impacts of Net Zero on air quality. The latter included Dr Catheryn Price from CERC presenting a talk entitled 'Dispersion modelling considerations for air quality and Net Zero'.

Speaker details and the conference programme can be found on the IAQM website here, and the slides of the presentations will also be available soon.


13 Oct 2023IAQM Webinar on Air Quality Futures: Environment Agency horizon scanning

CERC were recently commissioned by the Environment Agency (EA) to contribute to their ongoing horizon scanning programme, with a focus on the air pollution sources and situations that the EA is responsible for. Two projects were commissioned as part of the programme.

In one project, CERC worked with Air Quality Consultants to assess the developing approaches and technologies around air quality modelling and monitoring, and prospects for integrating these methods for air quality assessment. Specific methods covered include coupled modelling systems, machine learning and low-cost sensor networks. The other project, led by Aether, looked at the drivers and changes likely to impact on the EA's work over the coming decades. Both projects involved discussions with the EA and experts in the field to identify priority topics.

The Institute of Air Quality Management (IAQM) are hosting a webinar 'Air Quality Futures: Environment Agency horizon scanning' to launch the outcomes of these two projects. The webinar is free to attend and will take place between 12:15 and 13:15 next Tuesday (17th October). Register here for free and come along!
