As I have been requested access to the 2010-2011 Aerosol Train slides, here they are (disclaimer: scientific understanding has progressed in many ways after 2011) Hanna & Ilona 1_nucleation_AerosolTrain.pdf 2_events_AerosolTrain.pdf 3ab_vapours_sulfuric_acid_AerosolTrain.pdf 3c_vapours_organics_AerosolTrain.pdf 4_ions_AerosolTrain.pdf 5_activation_AerosolTrain.pdf 6_impact_AerosolTrain.pdf
The aerosol train makes a stop in the late September in Uppsala, Sweden. The lectures have been considerably updated with new exciting science – so even those who attended the predecessors of the aerosol train lectures in Stockholm University at 2008 are more than welcome to join to see the fruit of their good questions and comments! The course is… Continue reading One more stop: Uppsala 26.-27.9.2011!
After two weeks of travel we are home again. It was another magnificent two weeks – many scientific and philosophical discussions, beautiful sights, impressive labs and great hosts. One of the best things though was the feeling of doing something unique and out of ordinary in science – at least in our field – with… Continue reading Home!
Last day of lectures on the aerosol train starting in Leipzig. Yesterday we found a marvellous toy shop, went to a bar above Auerbachs Keller where I guess Mephisto himself- assisted with a very stylish bartender- lured us to drink champange. Wolfram kindly invited us to have dinner at his place, we had a great… Continue reading Met Mephisto in Leipzig
We went running also this morning, and thanks to a map bought yesterday saw an amazing view over the Vltava river. After lecturing was assisted by nice “wedding cookies” provided by Vladja. Dining in the restaurant car in a Hungarian train from Prague to Dresden was kind of and experience with the waiter not too… Continue reading From Prague to Leipzig
…is almost like spring since we have travelled south enough to hit summery weather- at least it feels so for us northeners. We both went running around the institute area this morning, very enjoyable. Just like Guinness in Dublin, Pilsner Urquell is best experienced here. Bacon wrapped plums and local honey cake are also recommended.… Continue reading Prague autumn…
Travels guides do not always understand my mindset very well- more trumpet should be blown about a vast disused airport in the middle of a major city- Tempelhof. Once the vital for West Berlin during the airlift, now runway area converted to a park, impressive 1920’s and 1930’s buildings- the scale is enormous. Fleamarket in… Continue reading Arrived in Prague- just about
Potsdam offers Sanssouci place gardens, a vast collection of royal Prussian fancies in grand scale, topped with second world war and cold war memorabilia. My top three is 1) potatoes from grateful Germans on Frederick the Great’s grave 2) Cecilienhof- mock Tudor palace from 1916 , when Germany was at war against Britain, but the… Continue reading Without worries in Potsdam
Stayed the night at Merete’s near Copenhagen, we thank her and her family for hospitality- and laundry service. Ismo and Theo also popped in and we had some great laughs, sadly did not manage to persuade them to spend a weekend in Berlin. This day started with a 7 hour train trip from Copenhagen to… Continue reading Arrived for a weekend in Berlin
After an early morning we arrived at Copenhagen and the second day of the Lund-Copenhagen trip is almost over. We are looking forward to catching up with old Finnish friends (there seem to be many here) and staying with Merete. Tomorrow morning we will head to Berlin for a well-deserved weekend.
