MARCH 10 - Given the recent cases of COVID-19 in Colorado and the announcement of a State of Emergency for Colorado, we have decided to cancel the Front Range Atmospheric Chemistry Dialogue this Friday (March 13, 2020). This decision has been made to ensure everyone's health and safety and prevent a potential risk for spreading the virus.

We are excited about the interest the event received and will reschedule it to another date. Stay tuned!

NCAR jointly with the Universities and Research Organizations in the Front Range invites you to attend a community gathering on atmospheric chemistry and air quality.

Air pollution is now regarded as the number one “killer” ahead of cigarette smoking and alcohol/drug use. Research conducted to investigate processes related to atmospheric chemistry and aerosol microphysics is essential to address societal issues linked to bad air quality and climate change. This workshop will provide an opportunity for scientists and students in the Colorado Front Range to open a dialogue about their research through discussions and poster sessions.
