AAAR is supporting access to a web platform that provides aerosol science training resources for academics (students and faculty). This resource has been developed by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) Center for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Aerosol Science based in the UK. The materials provide training in the underlying physical science governing the properties and transformation of aerosols and are currently accessed by a large number of industrial partners and students from around the world. In particular, the CDT have made available to AAAR members the pre-class materials accessible to all CDT students, comprising over 50 hours of mini lectures, extensive multiple-choice problem sets to test learning, and detailed reading lists.
Students can register on the AAAR website under resources. The cost is $80 for two years of access. A small number of scholarships will be available through AAAR to support students who would benefit from the materials but are unable to purchase a full subscription. The education committee at AAAR will read these applications and select the awardees next fall. Further information on this online resource is available on the following webpage: https://www.aerosol-cdt.ac.uk/training/.
