A paper entitled Temporal Patterns in Fine Particulate Matter Time Series in Beijing: A Calendar View is shortlisted for this year’s RTPI Early Career Researcher Award for Research Excellence

This paper built on the gap that previous studies are limited because of problematic a priori assumptions that PM2.5 concentration follows subjective seasonal, monthly, or weekly patterns, this paper managed to discover the hidden temporal variation patterns of PM2.5 from a different perspective using innovative calendar visualizations.

The Awards for Research Excellence are run by the RTPI (Royal Town Planning Institute) and sponsored by Routledge/T&F to recognise and promote high quality, impactful spatial planning research from RTPI accredited planning schools, and planning consultancies around the world.
