15th Conference on Atmospheric Chemistry

Conferences and Symposia Conference Program
View by day or program, includes author index and personal scheduler

      The theme for the 2013 AMS Annual Meeting is “Taking Predictions to the Next Level: Expanding Beyond Today's Weather, Water, and Climate Forecasting and Projections”.  Over the past 60 years the meteorological community has made tremendous strides in making prediction a fundamental part of its scientific and operational/service heritage through the development and application of complex numerical models involving the atmosphere, ocean, land and cryosphere components of the Earth System. This theme will serve as a catalyst for the 2013 AMS annual meeting by focusing the attention of the research and operational communities, including those who are involved in accelerating the transition of research results into operations.  Furthermore, the increasing use of predictions by decision makers throughout federal, state, and local emergency management government agencies and by private/commercial sectors will serve as an important component for this annual meeting along with the extension of predictive capabilities into a broader domain, including public health, food security, air and water quality, alternative energy and responses to climate trends.

      Papers are solicited on all aspects of atmospheric chemistry and air quality including field and laboratory measurements, and chemical transport modeling from urban to global scales.  Following the general theme of the annual meeting the 15th Conference on Atmospheric Chemistry is encouraging submission of papers that address: 

  • Air quality model evaluation by satellite observations
  • Wildland fire impacts on air quality and atmospheric chemistry
  • High resolution atmospheric monitoring and modeling of industrial chemicals
  • Policy relevant background ozone and PM2.5

      If you are interested in organizing some special sessions, please feel free to contact the conference co-chairs (see their contact information below).  Graduate and undergraduate students are highly encouraged to submit an abstract describing your research.  Best student oral presentations and poster papers will be selected at the meeting and awarded by the Atmospheric Chemistry Committee soon after the meeting.

     For additional information please contact the program chairpersons, Tom Jobson (tjobson@wsu.edu) or Nicole Molders (molders@gi.alaska.edu).
