AWMA RMSS Virtual Luncheon – Quantify and Evaluate Metrics for Greenhouse and Criteria Air Pollutants to Estimate Environmental Consequences – April 22
April 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Please join AWMA-RMSS for their next (virtual!) AWMA lunch meeting, where they will hear from Maninder Thind, a PhD Candidate in Air Quality in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of Washington, Seattle.
Through this talk, Maninder will present methods and important contributions from his doctoral work that aims to quantify and evaluate metrics for greenhouse and criteria air pollutants to estimate environmental consequences from interventions, quantify air quality impacts on human population from point, area, and mobile emission sources, and evaluate health impacts from air pollution by race, income, and geography. Some of his work has been published in the Environmental Science & Technology journal: (1) Marginal Emissions Factors for Electricity Generation in the Midcontinent ISO and (2) Fine Particulate Air Pollution from Electricity Generation in the US: Health Impacts by Race, Income, and Geography. He will introduce an emerging spatial air quality model called the Intervention Model for Air Pollution (InMAP) that he used to estimate human health impacts from different emission source sectors and their impacts on demographic groups.
The meeting will be held online via Microsoft Teams, from 12PM-1PM, on Wednesday, April 22nd.
If you plan to attend this meeting, please RSVP to Sergio Guerra (Sergio.Guerra@ghd.com) by 11AM on Wednesday, April 22nd to receive instructions on how to attend online.
