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


Research grant and journal paper reviews, including reviewing the Government of Canada Program for International Polar Year (IPY) funding proposal

Supervisor of contract scientist and co-op student

Annually assessing and reporting the atmospheric transport and loadings of POPs to the Great Lakes for the Great Lakes Binational Toxic Strategy (GLBTS)
