Source apportionment – why, what and how





On Thursday, 3 May 2018 Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA) will be hosting a workshop, ‘Source apportionment – why, what and how’.

Register for the workshop



Source apportionment is a technique used to understand different sources of air pollution particles. It identifies the particles that make up air pollution and identifies where they come from.

The workshop will focus on particles, specifically in Melbourne and Victoria, and source apportionment methods.

Guest presenters include international experts Dr Judith Chow and Dr John Watson from the Desert Research Institute in the US. There will also be two of Australia’s leading researchers in airborne fine particle characterisation and source appointment, Professor David Cohen and Dr Melita Keywood.

The presentations and discussions from this workshop will inform developments in EPA’s air monitoring program and provide a focus for future efforts.

Air quality experts are invited to attend either in person or via the web-stream and can register via: https://sourceapportionment.eventbrite.com.au
