If you have a question about this talk, please contact Dr Alex Archibald.

The talk will explore areas in air quality where public policy in the UK and the EU are not always consistent with the best scientific evidence. Illustrations will be taken, inter alia, from the area of motor vehicle emissions where significant discrepancies exist between regulation and real world behaviour of vehicles, leading to poor air quality. The talk will explore the reasons behind this failure and point the way forward for future challenges. The air quality/climate change interface is another area where science and policy potentially diverge, generally to the detriment of public health. These issues will also be explored and optimal solutions discussed.

This talk is part of the Centre for Atmospheric Science seminars, Chemistry Dept. series.
