Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will publish selected papers from the NOSA-FAAR Symposium, held 26–28 March, 2018 in Helsinki, Finland. For this edition, participants from the conference are invited to provide manuscripts from their presentations with subjects across aerosol research related to health, atmosphere, climate, environment and technologies. It is our hope that this conference will present new and useful developments related to all areas of aerosol sciences.

NOSA, the Nordic Society for Aerosol Research, was founded in 1978. Its purpose is to promote aerosol research, interdisciplinary collaboration between members, to facilitate information to members and the general public by the arrangement of symposia, to support international collaboration and exchange of ideas, and to promote re-growth and education within aerosol sciences.

FAAR, the Finnish Association for Aerosol Research (FAAR) was founded in May 1983. The main aim of the society is to act as a link between researchers in various Finnish institutes and universities. After the foundation of the European Aerosol Assembly, FAAR has taken an active role also in international connections. FAAR is also a member society in the International Aerosol Assembly.
