Call for Papers
The 12th Symposium on the Coastal Environment (CE) is soliciting papers on advances in predicting coastal conditions, encompassing meteorology, oceanography and hydrology.
The goal of the symposium will be to provide a forum for the exchange of scientific, technical, and practical information among individuals from academic, public, and private sectors, in order to stimulate interaction between users and providers. Presentations will focus on global, regional and coastal forecast systems and on coupling of atmospheric, oceanic, hydrologic and ecological capabilities. We encourage papers addressing the building and testing of the capacity for long-term projections in coastal environments using the regional scale of the integrated Earth System models. Participation is also encouraged from IOOS Regional Associations and Federal operational centers.
The CE Committee strongly encourages student participation. Award certificates and cash prizes will be given for the best student (undergraduate or graduate) oral and poster presentations at the conference. The CE Committee is also offering travel awards for student AMS members who are presenting papers at the conference. Students who wish to be considered for prizes or travel support should indicate that when submitting their abstract.
Potential Session Topics fall into the following overarching themes:
- Case studies defining coastal hazards
- Recent tropical and extra-tropical events (e.g. Superstorm Sandy and Storm NEMO)
- Fukushima and atmospheric & oceanic dispersion
- Storm and inundation (surge/flooding)
- Ensemble forecasting in coastal zones and defining uncertainty
- Climate projections in the coastal environment (downscaling and upscaling)
- Ecological forecasting (e.g. WQ; HABs; Hypoxia)
- Coastal fog and cloudiness
- Modeling, Analysis, and Forecasting
- Coupling of global, regional and coastal modeling systems
- Coupling of atmospheric, oceanic, hydrologic and ecological systems
- Assessment of coastal observing systems
- Remote sensing of atmospheric and oceanic processes
- Developing solutions: New tools to assist coastal adaptation and decision making
- Hurricane preparedness
- Emergency management for other coastal hazards
- Urban-coastal environments
- Real-time forecasting of coastal processes
Please submit your abstract electronically via the Web by 1 August 2013 (refer to the AMS Web page at http://www.ametsoc.org/meet/online_submit.html). An abstract fee of $95 (payable by credit card or purchase order) is charged at the time of submission (refundable only if abstract is not accepted).
Authors of accepted presentations will be notified via e-mail by late-September 2013. All extended abstracts are to be submitted electronically and will be available on-line via the Web. Instructions for formatting extended abstracts will be posted on the AMS Web site. Authors have the option to submit manuscripts (up to 10 MB) electronically by 6 March 2014. All abstracts, extended abstracts and presentations will be available on the AMS Web site at no cost.
