The Atmospheric Environment Research Centre was established by Griffith University in 2009 to provide a focal point for the University’s research on the atmospheric environment.
The centre brings together university researchers and external partners with interests in the role of atmospheric aerosols in the broader environment, human health, climate, industry and medicine.
Our research program adopts an inter-disciplinary ‘whole-of-system’ approach to the complex processes that underpin the atmospheric environment, and in particular the important role of aerosols in the environment.
The centre has five principal research themes:
- Aeolian Dust
- Environmental Systems Modelling
- Atmospheric Pollution and Health
- Aerosol and Nano-technology
- Southern Ocean Persistent Organic Pollutants Program (SOPOPP)
Our centre also hosts Griffith University's E-Waste Research Program, a member of the United Nations Solving the E-Waste Problem (StEP) initiative. The StEP initiative’s overall aim is to develop strategies to solve the e-waste problem based on sound scientific research.
