The 22nd Conference on Air-Sea Interaction, sponsored by the American Meteorological Society and organized by the AMS Committee on Air-Sea Interaction will be held 11–14 January 2021 in conjunction with the 2021 AMS Annual Meeting in New Orleans, LA.  

Call for Papers

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. Observations and Modeling of Air-Sea Coupling and Exchange: recent advances in measurement, application, and coupled modeling 

  2. Physical Processes at the Air-Sea Interface, including waves, spray, bubbles, and aerosols 

  3. Air-Sea Interaction in High Winds and Extreme Environments/Events

  4. Air-sea interactions and the New Arctic 

  5. Select Topics on Air-Sea Interaction 

Joint Sessions

  1. Air-Sea Interaction Processes and Exchange over Coastal, Shallow, and In-land Waters (with 19th Symposium on the Coastal Environment)
  2. Climate change and extreme weather events in the coastal zone: the role of ocean-atmosphere-land interaction (with 19th Symposium on the Coastal Environment and 34th Conference on Climate Variability and Change)
  3. Extratropical air-sea interaction and climate impacts (with 34th Conference on Climate Variability and Change) 
  4. Atmospheric convection and air-sea interactions over the tropical oceans (with 34th Conference on Climate Variability and Change and Ninth Symposium on the Madden-Julian Oscillation and Sub-Seasonal Monsoon Variability)

Student Award Opportunities

22nd Conference on Air-Sea Interaction Student Presentation Awards

The AMS Committee on Air-Sea Interaction will host a student paper competition to recognize outstanding student contributions. Three awards each will be presented for oral and poster presentations with cash prizes ($150 1st place, $100 2nd place, and $50 3rd place) 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 competition must indicate their eligibility when submitting their abstracts. Students from under-represented minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply.
