Abstract Deadline Has Passed
The 19th International Conference on Nucleation and Atmospheric Aerosols, joint with the Nucleation Symposium, will be held in Fort Collins, Colorado, on 24-28 June 2013. The Conference is sponsored by the International Union on Geophysics & Geodesy (IUGG); the International Association on Meteorology & Atmospheric Science (IAMAS); the International Commission on Clouds & Precipitation (ICCP); the Committee on Nucleation & Atmospheric Aerosols (CNAA); and Colorado State University, Department of Atmospheric Science, also hosts of the event. Information on sponsorship opportunities can be found here.
The Conference will emphasize four major themes:
- Nucleation Theory & Experiment
Studies of homogeneous, heterogeneous and ion induced nucleation including single or multicomponent system cluster formation and properties, condensation and evaporation, experimental, theoretical and computational investigations.
- Tropospheric & Stratospheric Aerosols
Fundamental atmospheric aerosol processes, especially related to global warming, air quality and multi-phase chemistry. Studies of aerosol concentrations, distributions, variability and trends. Focus on composition, hygroscopicity, thermodynamics, phase change, physico-chemical and optical properties.
- Cloud Drop and Ice Nucleation
Fundamental processes related to droplet and ice-crystal activation, growth, cloud condensation nuclei and ice nuclei origin, composition, spatial and temporal distributions and loadings, experimental and theoretical studies.
- Aerosol-Climate Interactions
Direct and indirect effects of atmospheric aerosols on radiative forcing, hydrological cycle and climate, remote sensing and regional to global scale climate modeling of aerosol impacts and feedbacks.
This year's Conference also hosts a Special Session on:CLOUD (Cosmics Leaving OUtdoor Droplets)
CERN Facility experiments and related studies on new particle formation.
The Conference will feature invited speakers and contributed papers, with two late afternoon poster sessions.
