YESS community newsletter - April 2019 🌍
Research linking fine particulate pollution and premature deaths is under attack in the United States and other countries. nature.com/articles/d4158… https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-01234-2
Feinstaub ist gesundheitsschädlich - und noch nicht hinreichend erforscht
Die Debatte über #Luftschadstoffe aus Verkehr und Industrie drehte sich lange Zeit um #Stickoxide. Eine Stellungnahme der Nationalen Akademie der Wissenschaften Leopoldina rückt jetzt den #Feinstaub in den Vordergrund. Da hat #Deutschland viel zu tun, denn die Grenzwerte entsprechen noch nicht den internationalen Empfehlungen.
Last chance to fill the survey on Latin American Early Career #EarthSystemScience 🌎

The Commissioners will provide the scientific insights needed to underpin the setting of science-based targets for a stable and resilient planet. The deadline for nominations is 23 April 2019.
First day of carbonaceous #ParticulateMatter conference today in Vienna. It started with an ice-breaker evening, which was actually pretty nice. We had a nice view to the city (see pic). It is a rather small conference (~120 people). Lots of known faces and famous people around. 🙂
Tree rings reveal the reduction of trace metals in the atmosphere of São Paulo, #Brazil.
Focus on atmospheric particulate matter.
