22nd Symposium on Boundary Layers and Turbulence, 20–24 June 2016, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA

            The 22nd Symposium on Boundary Layers and Turbulence, sponsored by the American Meteorological Society, and organized by the AMS Committee on Boundary Layers and Turbulence, was held 20–24 June 2016, in conjunction with the 32nd Conference on Agricultural and Forest Meteorology and the 3rd Conference on Atmospheric Biogeosciences at the Sheraton, Salt Lake City hotel, Salt Lake City, Utah.  

            Papers and posters were invited on all subjects dealing with atmospheric boundary layers and turbulence including observational, modeling, theoretical, and applied studies.  We anticipated and invited presentations and posters addressing some of the following themes:

  • Boundary layer processes (theoretical, observational, or computational)
  • Observations and modeling related to renewable energy applications
  • Boundary layer clouds
  • Exchange of trace gases (CO2, BVOC, Nitrogen) between the surface and the PBL for forest and urban ecosystems (with Agricultural and Forest Meteorology)
  • Modeling and observations in heterogeneous, complex, and urban terrain (with Agricultural and Forest Meteorology)
  • Boundary layer parameterizations in models at all scales
  • Theoretical and practical issues associated with multi-scale simulations
  • Land-surface-PBL coupling, impact of heterogeneity as seen in modeling and observations (with Agricultural and Forest Meteorology)
  • Unsteady boundary layer behavior
  • Recent field experiments

The $95 abstract fee includes the submission of your abstract, the posting of your extended abstract, and the uploading and recording of your presentation, which is archived on the AMS Web site.

     The Boundary Layers and Turbulence Program Committee of the American Meteorological Society (AMS) was proud to award 6 Best Student Prizes (three poster awards and three oral presentation awards) at the 22nd Symposium on Boundary Layers and Turbulence held 20–24 June 2016 in Salt Lake City, UT. These awards recognized outstanding student contributions based on an evaluation of the oral or poster presentation.

     Authors of accepted presentations were notified via e-mail by mid March 2016.  Authors had the option to submit manuscripts (up to 10 MB) electronically by 22 July 2016.  All abstracts, extended abstracts and presentations are available on the AMS website at no cost.
