The Wolfson Atmospheric Chemistry Laboratories (WACL) were established in 2013; the first of its kind in the UK. Supported by a large award from the Wolfson Foundation and a private donor, the Laboratories enable experimental and theoretical studies relating to the science of indoor, local and global air pollution, stratospheric ozone depletion and climate change.
WACL operates as a collaborative venture between the University of York and the National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS), co-locating around >60 researchers from seven academic groups and NCAS. WACL is also home to independent research fellows, engineering and software experts, postdoctoral researchers, PhD students and final year undergraduate research projects.
The labs support research in all the main branches of modern atmospheric chemistry including:
