Purpose of Establishment and History
Organisation and Objectives
Founded in 1983 by a small group of leading pioneers, Korean Society of Atmospheric Environment (KOSAE) has grown through the decades to include more than 4,000 members. KOSAE has been the nation's leading educational and research organization to promote the scientific and technological development related with atmospheric environment and air pollution through the information sharing and professional collaboration across the public, academic, industry and policy makers. From college students and early-career engineers to project managers, corporate executives, researchers and academic leaders, KOSAE's members are as diverse as the community itself. KOSAE serves this wide-ranging community through quality programs in continuing education, training and professional development, research, conferences and publications, government relations and other forms of outreach.
