3 October 2022 - 7 October 2022 American Association for Aerosol Research (AAAR) 40th Annual Conference

The 40th AAAR Annual Conference is scheduled for October 3 to 7 in Raleigh, North Carolina. Visit the organizer’s website for key dates and deadlines.

An exciting array of Plenary Lectures, Special Symposia, Poster Sessions, Oral Platform Sessions, Tutorials, and Special Events will take place from Monday through Friday at 12:30pm.  Our Tutorial Chairs, Yue Zhang and Michael Schuit, have put together a list of 18 Tutorials on a wide range of aerosol science topics.  It is set to include some new topics as well as some of our old favorites.  Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday morning will all start with an 8am Plenary Lecture.  Our outstanding lineup of Speakers includes John Volckens, Sarah Henderson, and Jeff Siegel.  This year we will try something new for Friday by having our Plenary Lecture close the Conference.  This Plenary, which will be delivered by Susanne Hering, will be part of a group of activities the History of Aerosol Science Working Group is helping to coordinate to celebrate 40 years of AAAR.

The technical program will feature parallel Platform and Poster Sessions being seamlessly blended together by our 20 Working Group Chairs and Vice Chairs.  We will have 4 Special Symposia designed to bridge multiple areas and promote cross-disciplinary interaction on the following topics:

  1. Biomass Combustion: outdoor/indoor transport and indoor air quality
  2. Aerosol Physical Chemistry and Microphysics
  3. Aerosol Science of Infectious Diseases: What we’ve learned and still need to know about transmission, prevention, and the one health concept
  4. Aerosol sources and constituents of emerging importance and their impacts across spatial scales
17 October 2022 - 17 October 2022 Land-Atmosphere Workshop

On October 17, 2022, DOE’s Atmospheric Radiation Measurement user facility and DOE’s Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) will co-host a virtual workshop discussing ideas and opportunities to improve understanding of coupled land-atmosphere processes.

Atmospheric and earth systems scientists are welcome to join an open and virtual workshop, “Chemical processing across scales at land-atmosphere interfaces.”

  • 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Pacific time (11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern time) Monday, October 17, 2022.

Co-hosts are the U.S. Department of Energy’s Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) user facility and Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL). This workshop will discuss, refine, and collect feedback from members of the Atmospheric System Research (ASR) and Environmental System Science (ESS) program communities about ideas and opportunities to improve understanding of coupled land-atmosphere processes.

Discussion topics include:

  • synergistic research toward understanding land-atmosphere biogeochemical processes across scales in rural, urban, and coastal systems
  • highlighting opportunities presented by existing ARM field deployments to understand and improve model representations of aerosol, cloud, and land-atmosphere interactions, including key cross-coupling of those areas to explore land-atmosphere feedbacks and aerosol-cloud interactions
  • community input on the development of science topics (e.g., ARM Mobile Facility deployments) from the fiscal year 2023 ARM-EMSL call as part of the Facilities Integrating Collaborations for User Science (FICUS) program
  • exploration of opportunities at other ARM locations.

24 October 2022 - 27 October 2022 2022 ARM/ASR Joint Meeting

2022 ARM-ASR Joint MeetingThe 2022 Joint Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) User Facility/Atmospheric System Research (ASR) Principal Investigators (PI) Meeting will be held in-person (in Rockville, MD) and virtually.

The Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) User Facility provides the climate research community with strategically located in situ and remote sensing observatories designed to improve the understanding and representation, in climate and earth system models, of clouds and aerosols as well as their interactions and coupling with the Earth’s surface. The Atmospheric System Research (ASR) program supports an improved understanding of key cloud, aerosol, precipitation, and radiation processes that affect the Earth’s radiative balance and hydrological cycle, especially processes that limit the predictive ability of regional and global models. ASR has four priority research areas that correspond to atmospheric regimes with large uncertainties in Earth system prediction: aerosol processes, warm boundary-layer processes, convective processes, and high-latitude processes. The ASR principal investigators (PIs) are an important user group for the ARM facility, contributing 75% of scientific publications resulting from ARM data.

The 2022 joint user facility/PI meeting will provide a venue for ASR PIs and ARM scientific facility users to report on progress from their research and provide input on scientific priorities, needs, and gaps to the ARM facility.

The 2022 meeting will include plenary sessions, breakout sessions, and poster sessions for ASR scientists and ARM facility users to present their research results and for the ARM facility to present updates on ARM capabilities. Additionally, the meeting will provide opportunities for informal networking and for ARM users to interact with ARM facility staff and learn more about ARM capabilities.

The meeting will be a hybrid in-person and virtual meeting. Plenary and breakout sessions will allow participation by both in-person and virtual attendees. The meeting will have both in-person and virtual poster sessions. In-person poster presenters are encouraged to also submit an electronic version of their poster before the meeting so that virtual attendees may view it during the meeting.

The DOE Office of Science (SC) is fully committed to fostering safe, diverse, equitable, and inclusive work, research, and funding environments that value mutual respect and personal integrity. Effective stewardship and promotion of diverse and inclusive workplaces that value and celebrate a diversity of people, ideas, cultures, and educational backgrounds is foundational to delivering on the SC mission. The scientific community engaged in SC-sponsored activities is expected to be respectful, ethical, and professional. For more information, please see the SC Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion web page.

8 January 2023 - 12 January 2023 2023 American Meteorological Society (AMS) Annual Meeting

The 2023 AMS Annual Meeting will be held 8–12 January 2023 in Denver, Colorado at the Colorado Convention Center.

The theme: Data: Driving Science. Informing Decisions. Enriching Humanity.

We observe, create, measure, simulate, collect, and process data at a prodigious rate, propelled by modern digital technology, and use it to create new knowledge and insights; inform and validate models and hypotheses; guide policies and decisions; and advance the scientific, environmental, and societal dimensions of the weather, water, and climate enterprise (WWC).

This theme uses data as the locus for interlinking heterogeneous disciplines across the WWC enterprise along braids of commonality to propel new science, expand and empower the stakeholder ecosystem across all sectors, and ameliorate bias and socioeconomic inequity, through the suffusion of both theory and data centric approaches.

Abstract deadline: August 24, 2022
