About this collection

We are delighted to share with you the papers presented at our Faraday Discussion on Chemistry in the Urban Atmosphere which took place in London, UK in April 2016. A record of the live discussions will be published after the event.

While urban atmospheres vary considerably in composition, they are distinguished clearly from most rural atmospheres by their high primary pollutant loadings and relatively short timescales for reactions. Urban air pollution has major importance in the context of human health, with increasing urbanisation of human populations. Studies of urban atmospheric chemistry can play an important role in defining associated policy measures and determining compliance, if they are sufficiently robust and well understood. The research papers and associated discussions presented here address both key questions and over-arching issues related to understanding the complex and varied chemical processes taking place in the urban atmosphere.
