ISIAQ Announces First Ever Indoor Air Session during AGU Fall Meeting
We are excited to invite your abstract submission to the first ever Indoor Air session we are convening at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting entitled: “A041 - Connecting Atmospheric Chemistry of Indoor and Outdoor Environments”
at the 2022 AGU Fall Meeting which will take place on December 12-16, 2022, in Chicago, IL.
Our confirmed keynote presenters in this session are Allen Goldstein and Jonathan Abbatt.
The AGU conference attracts more than 25,000 participants each year, and our session is unique because it has the largest emphasis on indoor air chemistry and air quality of built environments that has ever been made in the AGU history.
More detailed information including the link to submit an abstract can be found at the following link: https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm22/prelim.cgi/Session/158209
We hope you can consider submitting an abstract to this session. The deadline is August 3rd
It would be appreciated if you could share this info with your group or any potentially interested colleagues.
Please let us know if you have any questions about the session and we hope to see you in Chicago.

In Collaboration with ISIAQ
Indoor air constitutes a small fraction of the Earth’s atmosphere, which is important because humans spend 80-90% of time indoors. Indoor and outdoor environments are distinctly different, yet tightly connected. Outdoor pollutants such as ozone and particulate matter (PM) are transported indoors, contributing to human exposure. Indoor emissions, caused by solid-fuel combustions and use of volatile chemical products (VCPs) among others, make substantial impacts on local and regional air pollution.
This session aims to bring together indoor and outdoor air research communities to exchange ideas and promote scientific progress of this interdisciplinary research. Highlight topics include but are not limited to:
- Outdoor-to-indoor transport of PM, ozone, NO2, and other trace gases.
- Indoor-to-outdoor emissions of organic compounds, ammonia, PM, and other pollutants, and the impacts on local and regional atmospheric chemistry.
- Indoor chemical sources such as building and furnishing materials, solid-fuel combustion, cooking activities, use of VCPs (e.g., personal care products, cleaning products, and disinfectants).
- Exposure assessments considering both indoor and outdoor air.
We invite contributions from broad atmospheric modeling, measurement and environmental policy research which relate to urban and built environments.
