Second Conference on Atmospheric Biogeosciences

Missed this one:


Second Conference on Atmospheric Biogeosciences, 12–15 May 2014, Portland, OR
      The Second Conference on Atmospheric Biogeosciences, sponsored by the American Meteorological Society, will be held 12–15 May 2014 at the Crowne Plaza Portland Downtown Convention Center, Portland, Oregon. The conference theme is “Human Impacts on the Earth-Atmosphere System—Past, Present, and Future” Abstracts related to Atmosphere-Biosphere Interactions are welcome for submission by 24 January 2014.

      This conference is organized by the AMS Board on Atmospheric Biogeosciences and will be jointly held with the 31st AMS Conference on Agricultural and Forest Meteorology. Preliminary programs, registration, hotel, and general information will be posted on the AMS Web site by mid February 2014.

      The goal of the conference is to showcase the diversity in research in the field of biosphere-atmosphere interactions. More specifically, the conference is directed toward improving our understanding how the earth-atmosphere system evolves under changing environmental pressures. Sample abstract topics include: atmospheric fluxes of greenhouse gases and other trace gases from ecosystems due to anthropogenic activities; historic perspectives on the human ecological footprint; impacts of biosphere emissions and/or the carbon, nitrogen, and hydrologic cycles on climate and air quality; new techniques or instrumentation in atmospheric biogeosciences; the use of stable isotopes as indicators of biogeochemical processes; the use of remote sensing to monitor terrestrial biosphere changes; and theory and simulation of coupled biophysical, biogeochemical, and ecological processes. The conference will also honor Ray Leuning’s contribution to the atmospheric biogeosciences.
