21st Conference on Air-Sea Interaction Call for Papers

The 21st Conference on Air-Sea Interaction, sponsored by the American Meteorological Society and organized by the AMS Committee on Air-Sea Interaction, will be held 11–15 June 2018 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Preliminary programs, registration, hotel, and general information will be posted on the conference Web page.

The conference will be held in conjunction with the AMS 23­rd Symposium on Boundary Layers and Turbulence (BLT). Joint sessions will be held on topics associated with renewable energy, trace gas exchange, coastal, and high latitude environments.

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. A plenary session will be held to introduce the Conference. Although not an exhaustive list, we welcome abstracts covering the following topics:

1. High latitude air-sea interaction, including air-sea-ice interaction (joint with BLT)

2. Boundary layer processes, observations, and modeling related to renewable energy applications (joint with BLT)

3. The coastal environment (joint with BLT)

4. Exchange of trace gasses (CO2, H2O etc.) between the land/sea surface and the boundary layer (joint with BLT)

5. Air-sea interaction under high wind speed conditions

6. Sea surface processes, including waves, spray, bubbles, and aerosols
7. The role of air-sea interaction in climate variability and change

8. Air-sea flux measurements, datasets, and applications  

9. Recent field experiments

Participants with additional suggestions for general, special, or joint sessions are encouraged to submit their suggestions. The deadline for session topic proposal submission is 11:59 pm EST on 18 December 2017. Please follow the instructions on the conference Web page to submit suggestions. 

The Air-Sea Interaction Conference will host a student paper competition and make awards for exemplary student poster and oral presentations. A limited number of student travel awards will also be made available. Deadline to apply for student travel awards is 6th April 2018.

Please submit your abstract electronically via the Web by 12 February 2018 (refer to the AMS Web page https://ams.confex.com/ams/23BLT21ASI/webprogrampreliminary/start.html?). An abstract fee of $95 (payable by credit card or purchase order) is charged at the time of submission (refundable only if the abstract is not accepted). This $95 abstract fee will also cover the submission of your extended abstract and the uploading and recording of your presentation, both of which will be archived on the AMS Web site and available to all at no cost. There is also no cost for color graphics in the abstract or the extended abstract. Authors of accepted presentations will be notified (via e-mail) in mid March 2018. Instructions for formatting extended abstracts will be posted on the AMS Web site. All abstracts, extended abstracts, and presentations will be available on the AMS Web site at no cost to viewers. More information on poster presentations will be available once the program has been finalized.
