Themed Joint Session 12 Atmospheric Chemistry and Aerosols in Weather and Climate Prediction and Analysis

Tuesday, 12 January 2016: 1:30 PM-3:00 PM
Room 357 ( New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center)
Hosts: (Joint between the Eighth Symposium on Aerosol–Cloud–Climate Interactions; the 22nd Conference on Applied Climatology; the 28th Conference on Climate Variability and Change; the 19th Joint Conference on the Applications of Air Pollution Meteorology with the A&WMA; and the 18th Conference on Atmospheric Chemistry )
Pablo E. Saide, NCAR, Boulder, CO
Paul Bieringer, Aeris, Louisville, CO and Gregory Carmichael, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA

Large uncertainties exist in the effects of atmospheric gases and aerosols on weather and climate which impair our predictive capabilities. This session will focus on studies showing new developments and assessing these effects on multiple spatial and temporal scales. Studies including, but not limited to, aerosol-cloud-radiation interactions, ozone and chemistry impacts, and effects of performing data assimilation for atmospheric composition will be considered. Studies based on observations, models and both are welcome.
