Research on mineral dust is related to various science disciplines. To bring together researcher from these different research fields involving mineral dust, the "Leipziger Staubtag" is organised, a 1-day cross-disciplinary workshop. After three years of successful dust workshops organized in Leipzig (“Leipziger Staubtag”), the idea came up to host the workshop also at other research institutes in Germany. We would therefore like to invite you to attend this year's 5th dust workshop at Technische Universität Darmstadt on
28 November 2018.
An overview of recent research questions on mineral dust, exchange of experience and knowledge, interdisciplinary discussions and networking are some of the main foci of the workshop. We invite researchers with background from different disciplines such as atmospheric and climate sciences, geography, geology, mineralogy, chemistry, physics, micro-biology and related areas to present their research, ideas, or concepts in talks and poster presentations and to foster new collaborations. Possible topics for workshop contributions:
- Laboratory and field experiments, measurement campaigns
- Sediment archives
- Remote sensing
- Numerical modelling on different spatial and temporal scales
- Dust-related interactions and feedbacks
- Dust as transport medium for bacteria and biogenic substances
The "Staubtag 2018" is part of the COST Action inDust (CA16202, cost-indust.eu).
