AMS will have the centennial celebration during the January 2020 Annual Meeting in Boston. Through a long career over half a century, Robert Dickinson is one of the most prominent scientists who have been closely associated with the growth of AMS and the fields it represents (i.e., atmospheric science and related fields). Prof. Dickinson has been a leader with exceptional service to our field, including AGU President, chair or member of numerous National Research Council committees, national and international program committees, and various AMS/AGU/AAAS committees, and Editor of Journal of Climate. For his exceptional achievements and leadership, Prof. Dickinson has received numerous national and international awards including the Rossby Medal and Honorary Membership from AMS as well as membership in both National Academy of Science and National Academy of Engineering. He received his education in the Boston area (B.S., Harvard; M.S. and Ph.D., MIT).
The Robert E. Dickinson Symposium is sponsored by the American Meteorological Society.
Call for Papers
Papers for this symposium are solicited on the following:
Land surface modeling and remote sensing (e.g., integration of remote sensing data with land modeling, land model development, land cover/land use change); invited keynote speaker: Inez Fung (UC-Berkeley)
Large-scale atmospheric dynamics (e.g., planetary waves, atmospheric circulations); invited keynote speaker: Angel F. Adames-Corraliza (University of Michigan)
Earth system modeling and climate change (e.g., Earth system modeling, regional climate modeling, climate change, carbon cycle) (joint with 32nd Conference on Climate Variability and Change); invited keynote speaker: Gordon Bonan (NCAR)
Aerosol Approaches to Climate Engineering (e.g., results from climate modeling, using analogs such as volcanic eruptions and ship tracks, and development of technology to actually implement solar geoengineering) (joint with 32nd Conference on Climate Variability and Change, and the 22nd Conference on Planned and Inadvertent Weather Modification). Papers on the physics of climate engineering should be submitted to this session, and on ethical and governance issues related to climate engineering to the related session at the 22nd Conference on Planned and Inadvertent Weather Modification; invited keynote speaker: Simone Tilmes (NCAR)
