24th Conference on Atmospheric and Oceanic Fluid Dynamics Call for Papers


The 24th Conference on Atmospheric and Oceanic Fluid Dynamics is organized by the AMS Committee on Atmospheric and Oceanic Fluid Dynamics and hosted by the American Meteorological Society. It will be held 24-28 June 2024 at the Hilton Burlington Lake Champlain in Burlington, VT & online.

The program committee for this conference considered contributions on all aspects of Atmospheric and Oceanic Fluid Dynamics, including but not limited to:

  • Mesoscale and Submesoscale Ocean Dynamics

  • Waves, Mean Flow, and The General Circulation 

  • Coupling Between Moisture, Clouds and Circulation 

  • Dynamics in the Polar Regions 

  • Idealized Model Approaches to the Atmosphere and Ocean Circulation 

  • Machine Learning Applied to Geophysical Flows

  • Modeling and Theory of the Middle Atmosphere (joint with Middle Atmosphere) 

    • Fluid dynamics manifests itself in a distinct way in the stratosphere and mesosphere due to their unique basic states, resulting in several intriguing features that only exists in the middle atmosphere, such as the Quasi-Biennial Oscillation (QBO), Stratospheric Sudden Warming (SSW), Semi-Annual Oscillation(SAO) and the Brewer-Dobson circulation. We welcome recent advances in the theoretical understanding of the middle atmosphere dynamics. Efforts of simulating middle atmospheric features in idealized models as well as in comprehensive models are especially encouraged.  
  • Planetary Atmospheres and Oceans 

  •  Storm Tracks and Jets

  • Theory of Climate 

  • Tropical Atmospheric and Oceanic Dynamics 

  • Waves and Circulation: Connection Across Scales (joint with Middle Atmosphere) 

    • Interaction between waves and circulations is a fundamental aspect of the atmospheric and oceanic fluid dynamics. Examples of such interactions are ubiquitous in the atmosphere and ocean, from the tropics to the pole, and occurring on both weather and climate scales. This session welcomes recent advances on this topic from theoretic, observational and modeling aspects.

Please submit abstracts electronically via the Web no later than 29 February 2024. A fee of $120.00 (payable by credit card or purchase order) is charged at the time of submission of each abstract (refundable only if abstract is not accepted).  

Authors of accepted presentations will be notified via e-mail by mid-April 2024. Instructions for formatting extended abstracts are posted on the AMS website. All abstracts, extended abstracts, and presentations (including the recordings of those who grant permission) are available on the AMS website.
