Call for Papers
The theme for the 2014 AMS Annual Meeting is “Extreme Weather—Climate and the Built Environment: New perspectives, opportunities, and tools.”. Herein, we broadly define weather and climate extreme events to include, but not be limited to, severe storms, tornados, tropical cyclones, floods, winter storms, drought, temperature extremes, derechos, aircraft turbulence, wildfires, extreme solar activity, and ocean-land responses (e.g. storm surges, landslides, debris flows). Our society is a “built environment,” increasingly connected by cyber, energy, water, transportation, health, social, and other infrastructures—one that interacts with the natural environment through ecosystem functions supplied by wetlands, barrier islands, etc. The sustainability of this built environment and stewardship of our natural ecosystems are clearly related to quality of life. The theme is designed to explore the aforementioned “focal point” combining scientific inquiry, technological advances, societal implications, and public awareness through the lens of past, current, and future extreme weather and climate events.
The Conference on Atmospheric Chemistry is soliciting papers 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 16th Conference on Atmospheric Chemistry is encouraging submission of papers that address:
1. Wildland fire impacts on air quality and atmospheric chemistry
2. Marine boundary layer chemistry
3. Winter time air quality studies
4. Impacts of shale oil and gas industry emissions on atmospheric chemistry
5. Chemical Transport Modeling
6. Air Quality & Atmospheric Chemistry Measurements
7. Laboratory experiments
8. Satellite based measurements
9. Air Quality and Decision Making
10. Off-Shore Energy Production: Air Quality Modeling and Observations
If you are interested in organizing a special session, please feel free to contact the conference co-chairs (see their contact information below) by 1 May 2013. Graduate and undergraduate students are highly encouraged to submit an abstract describing your research. Cash prizes for best student oral presentations and poster papers will be award by the Atmospheric Chemistry committee.
