Ann-Lise Norman
ENSC Director, Associate Professor
Environmental Science Program Department of Physics & Astronomy
The University of Calgary
  • Atmosphere and Climate
  • Marine
  • Interdisciplinary
Atmospheric Science
Aerosols, sulfate, dimethylsulfide VOCs, source apportionment,
  • Arctic
  • Alpine
  • Global
  • General Cryosphere
  • Non-Polar

Norman’s group is interested developing techniques that use unique atmospheric compounds or ratios of compounds to identify and link biochemical processes to atmospheric constituents. Her group uses stable isotope apportionment to identify pollutant and aerosol sources in remote regions.  She is also interested in mapping oxidation processes for compounds that contribute to aerosol formation and ice nuclei activation which can initiate precipitation events. 

  • Mentor Panels
    These panels are held at major international conferences and are coordinated by
    APECS members. Participation involves a 2-3 hour commitment on the day
    of the panel meeting.

  • Career Development Presentations
    Short presentations at conferences/workshops with a question/answer period.

  • Career Development Workshop Sessions
    Helping in the coordination and facilitation of sessions at major conferences

  • One-on-One Mentoring
    Email correspondence with APECS members regarding career advice (including
    alternative careers in polar/cryospheric issues), research skills, data
    management and occasional research-specific discussions/questions.

  • Participation in live online discussions
    This will be advertised to all APECS members and will be facilitated by an
    APECS Council or Executive Committee Member. Transcripts will be
    posted online for future reference.

  • Reviewing Resumes/CVs and Assisting with Cover Letter Development.

  • Helping to improve presentation and communication skills

  • In-person meetings/conferences/seminars
  • Telephone/Skype conversations
  • Email Exchange
  • American Geophysical Union
