PRAGUE CENTRE OF
METEOROLOGY, AND THEIR
The Fourth International Conference on Urban Air Quality - Measurement, Modelling and Management
The conference took place at the Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic
on 25th–27th March 2003. It was preceded by A Special Meeting
on Atmospheric Science Research:
Achievements, New Developments and Future Directions at the same place
on 24th March 2003. The main organizer of this conference was
the Institute of Physics, London, information about further collaborating institutes
and organizations can be found at the
of the conference where one can also find more details about this meeting.
As it follows from the second part of the conference’s name
the spectrum of participants was really broad including all those
who are professionally interested in various aspects of urban air quality problems
spanning from physicists, mathematicians and chemists
to those working in decision making process on various levels.
Thanks to the EC that supports the project MAGMA,
it was possible to promote the participation of five scientists
at this conference from the MAGMA activity funding.
The support consists in daily allowances covering the whole period of their stay
at the conference and travel costs.
All of the promoted participants that are listed below presented either
oral presentation or poster at the conference:
Mr. Marko Kaasik (Estonia) presented a poster: Domestic heating and urban air pollution in Northern Europe.
Mr. Nikolay Ivanov Kolev (Bulgaria) et al. presented a poster: Investigation of aerosol structure over urban area by polarization lidar.
Mr. Istvan Lagzi (Hungary) et al. had an oral presentation on: Simulation of the effect of the plume of Budapest on the photochemical air pollutants formation in Hungary.
Ms. Cristina Petrescu (Romania) et al. presented a poster: Meteorological factors and relation with respiratory diseases in Turnu Severin, Romania.
Ms. Judit Zádor (Hungary) et al. presented a poster: Quantitative assessment of uncertainties for a model of tropospheric ethene oxidation.
