19th Conference on Air-Sea Interaction

The theme for the 2015 AMS Annual Meeting is “Fulfilling the Vision of Weather, Water, and Climate Information for Every Need, Time, and Place”. People, businesses, and governments depend increasingly on weather, water, and climate information matched to their specific needs. We are converging on a day when such information is integrated into nearly every decision or action people take. This revolution in highly targeted, customized information - delivered when and where it is most useful - will make our lives safer, more productive, and more enjoyable.  The challenge for our community is this: collaborate and innovate to develop – and ultimately deliver – actionable, user-specific weather, water, and climate information across all spatial and temporal scales in support of our nation’s safety, health, and prosperity.  The meeting will explore the many topics required for our community to implement this vision.

Papers and posters for this conference are solicited on all aspects of air-sea interaction across a wide spectrum of temporal and spatial scales. General sessions for the conference will be based on the number and topics of abstracts received. Although not an exhaustive list, we welcome abstracts covering the following topics:


  1. Sea surface processes, including waves, spray, bubbles, and aerosol

  2. Laboratory, field, and satellite measurements of air-sea interaction processes.

  3. Coastal and marine boundary layers in the atmosphere and ocean

  4. Air-sea flux measurements, estimation, and parameterization

  5. Air-sea flux datasets: developments and applications

  6. Air-sea interaction in tropical cyclone (high wind) conditions.

  7. Air-sea interaction at high latitudes

  8. Air-sea interaction including the stratosphere

  9. Air-sea interaction at the mesoscale, and effect on planetary scale climate

  10. The role of air-sea interaction in climate variability

  11. The role of air-sea interaction in climate change

  12. Surface wave effects on oceanic turbulence and air-sea interaction, from small to climate scale

  13. Joint session: Air-sea interaction and long-term climate variability in the coastal oceans and marginal seas (with 13th Symposium on the Coastal Environment)

  14. Joint session: Marine Aerosols: Sources, Chemistry, Clouds and Climate (with 17th Conference on Atmospheric Chemistry and the 7th Symposium on Aerosol–Cloud–Climate Interactions)

  15. Joint session: Aquarius mission: Modeling and Analysis of satellite-based salinity data (with 20th Conference on  Satellite Meteorology and Oceanography)

  16. Joint session: Impact of air-sea interactions on Madden-Julian Oscillations (with Third Symposium on Prediction of the Madden–Julian Oscillation)

The Air-Sea Interaction Conference will host a student paper competition and make awards for exemplary student poster and oral presentations. Every student who enters this competition will also receive a complimentary copy of the AMS Glossary of Meteorology or a comparable AMS book. 

 Please contact the program chairpersons (contact information noted below) by 1 May 2014 if you would like to propose a session topic for this conference.

The $95 abstract fee includes the submission of your abstract, the posting of your extended abstract, and the uploading and recording of your presentation which will be archived on the AMS Web site.

Please submit your abstract electronically via the Web by 1 August 2014 (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 2014. All extended abstracts are to be submitted electronically and will be available on-line. 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 5 February 2015.  All abstracts, extended abstracts and presentations will be available on the AMS Web site at no cost.

For additional information please contact the program organizers: Magdalena Anguelova, conference organizer (e-mail: [email protected]); Young-Oh Kwon, conference co-organizer (e-mail: [email protected]); Henry Potter, Conference co-organizer (e-mail: [email protected]); and Tetsu Hara, Student competition organizer (e-mail: [email protected]).

Student Award Opportunities

The 19th Air-Sea Interaction Conference will host a student paper competition for both oral and poster presentations. Cash prizes and a certificate from AMS for first and second places will be awarded to first author students presenting their own original work. Both graduate and undergraduate students can apply for the competition. Students who wish to be considered for the completion must indicate their eligibility when submitting their abstracts.

A networking reception is planned for registered students, invited speakers to Air-Sea Interaction (ASI) sessions, and the AMS ASI committee.

For more information please contact the Student competition organizer Tetsu Hara ([email protected]) or the program organizers Magdalena Anguelova ([email protected]); Young-Oh Kwon ([email protected]); and Henry Potter ([email protected]).
