Manila Observatory Brown Bag lectures for August 1-15, 2013

Manila Observatory Brownbag lunch sessions, Thursdays, 11-12 pm

Manila Observatory Brownbag lunch sessions, Thursdays, 11-12 pm

Good day!

The Manila Observatory would like to invite Ateneo faculty, staff and students to join us for brownbag lunch seminars on Thursdays from 11 am -12 noon at the Klima room (2nd floor) of the Manila Observatory.

This is an opportunity to learn more about the work of our researchers and scientists in an informal session where audience members can actively participate and engage in a discussion with the speaker.

On Thursday, August 1, we will have Ms. Meliza Cruz from the Air Quality Dynamics research program talk about “Monitoring and Source Apportionment for Particulate Matter Pollution in Six Asian Cities“, of which research from our very own scientists at MO contributed to an
Asian assessment of air quality.

You bring your lunch, we’ll serve the science!

Pass on to anyone who might be interested in joining us! Hope to see you soon! For any questions, contact Monica Ortiz, amdortiz@observatory.ph
