Jianmin Ma

Research Scientist - Modelling of atmospheric transport and multicompartment fate of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and heavy metals

CURRENT S&T / RESEARCH - Contributing to Environment Canada’s mandate for risk assessments and improving the understanding of environmental fate of toxic chemicals

  • Modelling regional and global-scale atmospheric transport and deposition of POPs and heavy metals
  • Impact of climate variability and climate change on the budget of persistent toxic chemicals in multi-compartments
  • Impact of extensive use of organochlorine pesticides on climate change
  • Environmental and physical process of POPs in the atmospheric boundary-layer
  • Development of the state-of-art mathematic models for simulating the transport and budget of POPs
