NCAR's -ACD Diversity Fund Proposal is delighted to sponsor Dr. Alma Hodzic visit to Howard University Program for Atmospheric Science.

Dr. Alma Hodzic is currently working as a Scientist at NCAR in the Atmospheric Chemistry Division on air quality modeling. Her research in particular is aimed at understanding and improving the representation of atmospheric aerosols, and their retroactions on regional photochemistry and meteorology. She contributes also to the development and evaluation of community meso-scale models used for chemical weather predictions such as WRF-Chem. She has been involved in field studies including (i) the MIRAGE project - to examine the formation and evolution of organic aerosols in the polluted outflow from Mexico City, and (ii) the BEACHON field project - studying the formation of biogenic secondary organic aerosols.
Thursday October 10th, 2013
Dr. Hodzic meet with students to talk about their interests and research.
HU-Beltsville Campus.
Appointments start at 11:00 a.m.
Lunch will be provided.
Friday October 11th, 2013
Dr. Hodzic Seminar:
Formation and removal of organic aerosols in a polluted megacity. Current scientific and modeling challenges.

The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)'s Atmospheric Chemistry Division (ACD) and Diversity Fund Proposal are pleased to invite you to attend Dr. Sasha Madronich's Science Seminar, Workshop, and Dialogue with Students on Thursday March 28 and Friday March 29, 2013 at Howard University (HU).

Please find Flyer attached.

Your participation is important to us. Please RSVP for each event you are planning to attend in person or through broadcast. Even though the events might be broadcast for other institutions/programs/students' benefit, we encourage HU students and professors to attend the events in person. One of the objectives of the proposal is to encourage direct interactions of students/professors from the institution with the visiting scientist to establish long-term relationships by getting to know you in person.

We will send a reminder next week with specific room information for the events.

For information you may contact us: or talk to HU Professor Collaborators: Dr. William R. Stockwell and Dr. Belay Demoz, or HU Students Collaborators: Ms. Karretta Venable and Ms. Mayra Oyola.
