Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)
The growing situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in the UK is presenting unprecedented challenges for individuals, companies and organisations alike. As a responsible organisation, the IAQM’s primary concern is for the safety of its attendees, members, speakers, exhibitors and staff. We are therefore following the advice of the UK Government to ‘avoid social contact with others and stop non-essential travel to fight Coronavirus’ and as a result, all face-to-face events and workshops for the next few weeks will be postponed.
Where possible we will deliver events and workshops via online platforms. Please refer to the individual event page for further details around each of our events.
We will honour all bookings made for events to date and transfer these to the new event date, details of which will be circulated to you in due course.
We thank you for your support during this time.

Susan Zappala, Joint Nature Conservation Committee and Mark Wilmot, Wing on behalf of the RIVM (Dutch National Institute for Public Health and the Environment).Ecological assessment of air pollution is under increasing scrutiny due to caselaw challenge and UK policy developments. In the Netherlands, a similar challenge was tackled through their Integrated Approach to Nitrogen (PAS). With the advent of the Dutch Nitrogen Judgment, the PAS is being revised. However, the AERIUS suite of tools developed to implement the PAS remain useful. Through the ITAPA project,…Find out more »
Small sensors are increasingly being used to measure gases and particles in the atmosphere, as part of academic research and in citizen science projects. Their low cost, portability and low power requirements bring new measurement possibilities, for example to improve the spatial representation in air quality monitoring networks. However, to deliver quantitative observations requires that sensor performances should be well-understood and characterised. Furthermore, sensor behaviour depends on the environment of application. Tjarda Roberts, through research, has deployed small sensors at volcanoes…Find out more »
