Proceedings of Training Workshops for (1) Applying PMF receptor model for PM2.5 source appointment and (2) Processing MODIS AOD products for assessing biomass burningrelated air pollution

These training workshops were parts of the activities under the research project “Integrated Approach of In-situ Measurement, Modelling Techniques, and Advanced Satellite Remote Sensing for Mapping and Quantifying Contribution of Local and Regional Biomass Burning Sources to Air Pollution in Southeast Asian Countries” (Project Reference Number: CRRP2019-11MY-Nguyen) which is supported by the Asia Pacific Network for Global Change Research (APN). The training workshops were successfully organized with the mixed online and offline mode by the Institute of Environmental Science and Engineering (IESE), Vietnam in September and October 2021.

The training aimed to provide the young and early-career scientists from the local agencies, academic and research institutions, professional associations, and private sector with the opportunities to develop their knowledge and skills with respect to applying the PMF receptor model for PM2.5 source appointment and using MODIS AOD products for assessing biomass burning-related air pollution. The training not only enhanced the technical capacity and capability of the young and early-career scientists to apply the advanced technical tools in studying biomass burning and air pollution issues but also provided good opportunities for establishing the collaborative network among the participants for future research, thus directly contributing to the APN Capacity Development Agenda.
