97th AMS Annual Meeting | 22–26 January 2017 | Seattle, WA

Ninth Symposium on Aerosol–Cloud–Climate Interactions

view in conference program

Presentation Topics

Papers for this Symposium are solicited on the following topics:

  •  Cloud Adjustments to the Presence of Shortwave-Absorbing Aerosols and Large-scale Feedbacks
  • Aerosol-cloud Interactions in Shallow Clouds
  • Aerosol-Deep Convection Interactions
  • Aerosol-cloud Interactions in Regional and Global Climate Models: Uncertainties and Discrepancies Between Models and Observations
  • Impacts of Aerosol-Cloud Interactions on Radiation

In support of the Annual Meeting theme, we are especially interested in papers discussing grand observational challenges in aerosol-cloud-climate interactions, the ways in which observations can be used to evaluate modeling studies of aerosol impacts, and processes within numerical models that could be enhanced through new observational strategies

Important Dates

Abstract Submission Deadline: 8 August 2016
