2008-03 Cabin Air - Safe to breathe?

March Café Scientifique Cabin Air - Safe to breathe? 

Monday 3rd March at 7pm in the bar of the Showroom 
by Dr Murray Wilson, University of Sheffield and General Medical 

Cabin air quality is an emotive subject, and gets blamed for many ill 
effects. The provision of an acceptable atmosphere for air passengers 
imposes constraints on the providers of many aspects of aircraft and 
air travel. These constraints can be resolved only by a series of 
compromises. Dr Murray Wilson will aim to explain who is involved, the 
need for compromise, and the way the atmosphere is produced, with a 
look at the possible effects on passengers.
