We are pleased to inform you on the upcoming 2nd Training Course on Positive Matrix Factorization (PMF) for source apportionment studies, to be held in Barcelona next 14-16 June 2017 in the framework of AIRUSE LIFE+ Project.
Atmospheric particulate matter (PM) is a complex mixture of particles emitted by multiple sources.
Positive Matrix Factorization (PMF) is a widely used receptor model to perform PM source apportionment studies, identifying main sources of pollution and estimating their contributions to PM concentrations in ambient air.
International experts on receptor models and their applications to environmental sciences will offer a comprehensive training course on the use of USEPA PMF 5 program.
The course will cover the following topics:
Input data uncertainty estimates
Case studies for contrasting types of environment
Apportionment of PMx, Organic matter, road dust, etc.
Coupling of meteorological and epidemiological data
The training course is addressed to PhD students, postdoctoral researchers and environmental technicians.
Registration Limited to the first 42 applications.
Deadline for subscription: 29 April 2017
Subscription fee: 100 euro
