Event details

From England to Cape Verde to Borneo and back again. Visit scientists from York’s Wolfson Atmospheric Chemistry Laboratories (WACL) to find out why air pollution is a global problem, how researchers measure it and why they get to travel the world. Using experiments, find out more about air pollution, including why sunlight is so important. See how air pollution data from the UK compares with different locations and tell us where you think York researchers should go next.
