Holiday Inn Baltimore North
The Science Meeting focused on airborne organic carbon particulate matter. The meeting goal was to present current science that can be used to inform policy. Expert presenters addressed topics such as the modeling of secondary organic aerosol, source apportionment, measurement of atmospheric organic carbon, the contribution of transportation sources, and the challenge of distinguishing between biogenic and anthropogenic carbon.
Discussion periods allowed policy makers and scientists to exchange ideas that clarify the impact of the science on policy decisions.
