17th Conference on Mesoscale Processes Call for Papers

Oral and poster presentations were solicited on all aspects of mesoscale meteorology, which included but was not limited to observational, theoretical, and modeling climate and weather-related studies of

  • Mesoscale convection
  • Mesoscale predictability
  • Gravity waves and turbulence
  • Orographic flows and rainfall
  • Extratropical and tropical cyclones
  • The diurnal cycle
  • Microphysical and aerosol effects on mesoscale processes

Papers on 1) mesoscale processes in climate simulations, 2) the use of data assimilation and ensemble forecasting to enhance predictability, and 3) results from recent field campaigns (e.g., DEEPWAVE, DYNAMO, MPEX, OWLeS, PECAN) are especially encouraged.

The Mesoscale Processes Committee encouraged abstract submissions from students and postdocs for which awards were given for best presentations. 

Multiple submissions were allowed by individual authors. However, AMS policy limits participation to one oral presentation each (please note that additional submissions will be assigned as posters). The availability of oral presentations, however, depended on the number of submissions. When submitting more than one abstract, authors were also asked to specify which abstract they would prefer to be considered for oral presentation. An abstract fee of $95.00 (payable by credit card or purchase order) was required at the time of abstract submission (refundable only if abstract is not accepted). This fee included the posting of your abstract and the posting of your presentation and its recording (if consented to) on the AMS website.

Authors of accepted presentations were notified via email by Late-April 2017. All abstracts, extended abstracts, and presentations (including the recordings of those who have granted permission) are available on the AMS website. For further information, please contact the conference co-chairs: Katja Friedrich (katja.friedrich@colorado.edu) or Stan Trier (trier@ucar.edu).
