Expertise and experience of the organization
The Laboratory Inter-universitaire des Systèmes
Atmosphériques (LISA) is a joint research unit of the CNRS, the University
of Paris 12 and the University of Paris 7. The laboratory activities cover
six main research topics including desert aerosols, the oxyding capacity
of the atmosphere, the local and continental pollution, the atmospheric impacts
on ecosystems, the organic physico-chemistry of planetary environments, and
Role and contribution

Principal personnel involved
Dr. Matthias Beekmann (Team leader;
Ph.: +33-1-45171545; Fax: +33-1-45171564, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Senior Scientist at CNRS. Since more than 15 years, he is working on various
aspects of the tropospheric ozone budget on the global, continental and regional/urban
scale. His major field is regional scale pollution modelling. He initiated
with colleagues the development of a continental and regional scale transport
and chemistry model (CHIMERE), which is now operationally used for air quality
forecast at INERIS (www.prevair.org). He is author or co-author of about
30 peer-reviewed publications. He participated as a PI to a large number
of EU projects in the field, BOA (Budget of Ozone over the Atlantic), TACIA
(Testing Atmospheric Chemistry in Anticyclones), MAXOX (MAXimum OXidation
rates in the free troposphere), NATAIR (Improving and Applying Methods for
the Calculation of Natural and Biogenic Emissions and Assessment of Impacts
on Air Quality), GEMS (Global and Regional Earth system Monitoring Using
Satellite and in-situ Data) and GEOMON (Global Earth Observation and Monitoring).
Dr. Agnès Borbon (CNRS Res. Scientist; Ph.: +33-1-45171519;
e-mail: email@example.com) – is an atmospheric scientist at CNRS.
Since 8 years, she has been working on various aspects of tropospheric chemistry
and especially sources and fate of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and their
implication on photooxidant budget. Her approach is based on field experimental
work both on ground and airborne platforms and statistical data analysis.
During her PhD, she developed an automated online system for VOC ozone precursor
monitoring which is now the reference method of the French Monitoring Air
Quality Network. At the LISA, she has been developing a new offline instrumentation
for primary and secondary VOC airborne measurements. She collaborated to
various French and EU projects (MERA/EMEP, ESCOMPTE (Expérience sur
Site pour COntraindre les Modèles de Pollution atmosphérique
et de Transport d’Emissions) and AMMA (Analyse Multidisciplinaire de la Mousson
Assoc. Prof. Aurélie Colomb (Assoc. Prof.; Ph.: +33-1-45171547;
e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org) - is Assoc. Prof. at the university
Paris 12 (Creteil) and works in LISA since Sep 2006. Since 8 years, she is
working on the measurement of organic compounds in the atmosphere and its
relation to photochemical ozone production. Her major field is VOCs/NOx/O3
measurements during ground or airborne field campaigns. She participated
to a large number of French/German/EU projects in the field, POVA (Pollution
des Vallees Alpines), ESCOMPTE, UTOPIHAN-ACT (Upper Tropospheric Ozone: Processes
Involving HOx and NOx -The Impact of Aviation and Convectively Transported
Pollutants in the Tropopause Region), HOHPEX (Hohenpeissenberg OH-Intercomparison
and Photochemistry Experiment), MANCHOT (Measurement of Anthropogenic and
Natural Compound in the Southern Hemispheric Oceanic Troposphere), PEeCE
III (Pelagic Ecosystem CO2 Enrichment Study), GABRIEL (Guyanas Atmosphere-Biosphere
exchange and Radicals Intensive Experiment with the Learjet), and OOMPH (Organics
over the Ocean Modifying Particles in both Hemisphere).
Assoc. Prof. Isabelle Coll (Assoc. Prof.; Ph.: +33-1-45171546;
e-mail: email@example.com) - is Assoc. Prof. at the university Paris
12 (Creteil). Since about 10 years, she is working in the field of air quality
model development and applications. She was deeply involved in the ESCOMPTE
project. In particular, she was charge of a workpackage aiming at systematically
evaluating the effect of different emission reductions scenarios on air quality
in the Marseille region. She is member of many national projects dealing
with regional scale photooxidant modelling and also of several EU projects
EU/GEMS and ESA PROMOTE.
