19th Conference on Mountain Meteorology Call for Papers

The program committee for this conference seeks contributions on all aspects of mountain meteorology, including but not limited to:

  • Dynamics and physics of orographic clouds and precipitation
  • Boundary layers and turbulence in complex terrain
  • Diurnal mountain winds and cold-air pools
  • Mountain waves and airflow dynamics
  • Mountain hydrology and ecology
  • The mountain cryosphere (snowpack, glaciers, avalanches)
  • Climate change and variability over complex terrain
  • Numerical weather prediction, data assimilation, and forecasting in complex terrain
  • Applications of mountain meteorology (e.g. air quality, fire dynamics, wind resource assessment, and winter sports forecasting)
  • New or emerging topics in mountain meteorology
  • Preliminary results from recent field campaigns

A special named session will also be held to honor the contributions of Dr. Vanda Grubišic.

A special session on Education, Outreach, Diversity, Inclusion and Equity in Mountain Meteorology will also be held. Individuals wishing to contribute to this session through an abstract submission can also submit an abstract to the science sessions above without penalty.

The Committee on Mountain Meteorology encourages abstract submissions from students: Awards will be given to the best student oral and poster presentations at the conference. Students must indicate that they wish to be included in the competition when submitting an abstract. Two student travel awards will also be available to help supplement travel expenses. Please contact the conference chairpersons or refer to the AMS web site for further details regarding eligibility and how to apply.

Please submit your abstract electronically via the AMS website by 12 March 2020; see the website for instructions. An abstract fee of $95 (payable by credit card or purchase order) is charged at the time of submission (refundable only if abstract is not accepted). The $95 abstract fee includes the submission of your abstract, the posting of your extended abstract, and the uploading and recording of your presentation that will be archived on the AMS Web site.

Authors of accepted presentations will be notified via e-mail by late April 2020. Instructions for formatting extended abstracts will be posted on the AMS website. Extended manuscripts (file size up to 3 MB) must be submitted electronically by 14 Aug 2020. All abstracts, extended abstracts, and presentations will be made available on the AMS website.
