News: a word of caution - this doesn't get updated too often. Sorry!


A followup to our workshop for middle school teachers was held.

Sinan Sousan graduated with his Ph.D. in Chemical and Biochemical Engineering.

May-June 2012. Iowa City Landfill fire. We assisted with sampling and modeling the smoke plume.

July-August 2012. Sampling in Iowa City for the Johnson County Air Quality Study.


Our summer workshop for middle school teachers was held in June, with information here and here.

A CGRER blog entry based on a journalist interview with Stanier.

Sang Rin Lee completed his postdoctoral research work at the University of Iowa and joined Doosan Heavy Industries in Korea



- Robert Bullard joined the group as a graduate student working towards his Ph.D.

- Ashish Singh joined the group as a graduate student working towards his Ph.D.


- 2010/2011 IMCANS (Iowa's Multiscale Carbon and Nitrogen Studies) scholarship winners announced. Ben Behrendt, Robert Bullard, Kelsey Coulter, and Lorraine Buckmann are the recipients.


- Stanier joined the Iowa Department of Natural Resources PM2.5 Implemantation Workgroup, which is focused on implementing effective and sensible regulations for reducing PM2.5 concentrations and the associated health hazards. More information, including Stanier's presentation to the group, can be found here.


- Aditsuda presented a poster at the WRF workshop, and also a presentation to the NOAA Global Monitoring Division in Boulder.


- Alicia Pettibone completed her Ph.D. and joined NIST in Maryland as a postdoctoral researcher

- We began working with LADCO (Lake Michigan Air Directors Consortium) for a data analysis and modeling project regarding 3 months of high time resolution nitrate, nitric acid, and ammonia and ammonium aerosol data from rural and urban sites in Georgia and Wisconsin.


- The flood of 2008 hit us over the summer of 2008, severely flooding the Iowa Advanced Technology Laboratories.

- University of Iowa base grant program starts under the Iowa Space Grant Consortium (ISGC). Our program is entitled IMCANS: Iowa's Multiscale Carbon and Nitrogen Studies. More details and project website to come soon. Participants are Thanos Papanicolaou (co-director), Greg Carmichael, and Tom Moorman of the USDA National Soil Tilth Lab in Ames.
