" Science Rendez-Vous" on Trans-boundary Air Pollution (12/4/2016) [fr]
Prof. YIM Hung Lam Steve is an Assistant Professor of the Department of Geography and Resource Management, CUHK will animate the next "Science Rendez-vous" about "air pollution" organized by the scientific department of the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macau, on Tuesday, April 12, 2016, from 7:30 pm to 9 pm, at the restaurant "Chez Patrick Deli " at BRIM28.
TRANS-BOUNDARY AIR POLLUTION UNDER VARIOUS ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS
Trans-boundary air pollution is a crucial factor affecting air pollution, and its contribution may vary over the time and differ under various weather/climatic conditions. However, very few studies have comprehensively analyzed the spatio-temporal variations of trans-boundary air pollution. This talk will use Hong Kong and Singapore as examples to discuss the significant and special trans-boundary air pollution characteristics in high-density cities under various atmospheric conditions.
Prof. YIM Hung Lam Steve is an Assistant Professor of the Department of Geography and Resource Management, CUHK. Prof. Yim’s research aims to advance knowledge of the environmental impacts due to urban heat and air pollutant emissions, and to formulate mitigation measures to address these impacts. His current works focus on developing multi-scale model systems to simulate heat island effect, air ventilation and air pollution in urban areas, understanding micro-climate and air quality in street-canyons by measurement approaches, and studying the relationships between climate, air quality and land use through numerical modelling and statistical approaches.
Come and join “Science Rendez-vous” (in English) on air pollution, which will be animated by Prof. YIM Hung Lam Steve!

About "Science Rendez-vous":
Dedicated to a large audience, these monthly talks aim at taking part in the dissemination of scientific culture in Hong Kong. Through informal talks and exchanges with the audience, renowned experts from France or Hong Kong will popularize a large variety of scientific topics.
The « Science Rendez-Vous » will stay close from topical issues and will keep an eye on ground-breaking discoveries made by French or local teams as well as teams working in cooperation between the two countries.
The talks will be given in English in the following format: 30 minutes speech usually without any PowerPoint presentation followed by a Q&A session fostering interaction between the speaker and the audience.
By partnering with the restaurant « Chez Patrick Deli » who will host these « Science Rendez-Vous » at its Deli restaurant Brim 28, we hope to turn these learning moment into convivial evenings while having the possibility to enjoy the French gastronomy at the same time (cheese and cold cuts platters with a glass of wine, for instance).
If you want to subscribe to our mailing list whereby information will be given regarding these events, please email us by mentioning « Subscribe » in the email title.
Around 10 days before the « Science Rendez-Vous », an e-invitation will be sent with the subject of the next discussion and the link to book the number of places required.
The number of tickets will be limited to 60.
