Changes in aerosols during the transition over the Czech basin

Atmospheric aerosol undergoes many chemical reactions from its emission into the air. At the same time, a new aerosol is created by reactions of gaseous components both in the gas phase and on or in pre-existing aerosols. The aim of this work will be to study the changes that occur in the atmospheric aerosol during the transition between the stations Milešovka and the National Atmospheric Observatory Košetice (NAOK), while these samplings will be at a height of less than 800 m above sea level (using the 250 m high atmospheric tower Křešín (NAOK)) supplemented by the station Suchdol on the NW outskirts of Prague.

Samples will be taken online using aerosol mass spectrometers, aethalometers and supplemented by measurements of aerosol size distributions and off-line sampling on filters.

Required education and skills

  • Master degree in chemistry, environmental studies or meteorology;
  • systematic and creative approach to work;
  • both independence and team work ability.
