From urban smog to stratospheric ozone depletion, from greenhouse gases to acid rain, from global weather patterns to severe local storms, the atmosphere is a complex, changing system on which we are having a major impact. The effects of atmospheric processes can be felt in many ways, from health impacts to the environmental and economic consequences of climate change. What are the most important atmospheric issues affecting Canadians? How is Canadian atmospheric science addressing these concerns? What are potential industrial and economic impacts of remedial programs?

Dr. Michelangeli is an Associate Professor of Atmospheric Sciences in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Science at York University. She has recently been awarded an NSERC University Faculty Award to model the chemical impacts of particulate matter on ground level ozone formation. She has specialized in atmospheric science for sixteen years, eight of which were spent as an environmental consultant advising industry, government and the public on air quality issues.
