ATMOS 2023 workshop represents the second ATMOS networking activity.  The workshop coincides with the MID-TERM CONTRACTUAL MEETING of the H2020-MSCA-RISE-2019 Project Nr. 872081


ATMOS designates an international network which main objective is to establish a collaborative effort for the study of scientific problems related to atmosphere pollution elements, with an emphasis on training graduated students in atmospheric sciences. The network comprises 11 scientific groups and 31 senior scientists with a recognized expertise in state-of-the art experimental and theoretical studies of gas phase molecular systems and their interaction with solids.   Specific objectives correspond to three working groups. The general goals of the scientific working groups (WP) are the following:


·              WP1 pursues both the theoretical and the experimental spectroscopic characterization of Volatil Organic Compounds containing internal rotors, atmosphere radicals and abundant atmosphere components. WP1 deals with uncharacterized isolated targets which can play important roles in the processes related to WP2 and WP3.

·              WP2 deals with reactive processes and pursues the theoretical study of the mechanisms and photodissociation pathways of radical species and the study of the roles of organic peroxy radical reactions in atmospheric degradation of volatile organic compounds through laboratory techniques.

·              WP3 deals with non-reactive interactions. It pursues the study of rotationally-inelastic collisions of pairs of small atmosphere components, the modelling of silicate aerosols. WP3 also deals with theoretical and experimental studies of gas-solid interactions towards the design of new materials for gas sequestration.


ATMOS provides a novel multifaceted approach to challenging atmospheric problems. The main novelties of the project are:

a) The spectroscopic description of rather complex uncharacterized OVOCs focused to their detection by the large scale and local instruments

b) The study of reactive processes to understand in detail the connection between VOCs and atmospheric radicals and to describe the relevant role of radicals.

c) The exploitation of some Greenhouse Gases (GHG) as reagents towards the preparation of innovative materials, contributing, at the same time, to the reduction of their presence in the environment.
