35th Conference on Hurricanes and Tropical Meteorology Call for Papers

Call for Papers: 35th Conference on Hurricanes and Tropical Meteorology

09-13 May 2022, New Orleans, LA

The 35th Conference on Hurricanes and Tropical Meteorology, sponsored by the American Meteorological Society (AMS) and organized by the AMS Committee on Tropical Meteorology and Tropical Cyclones, will be held 09-13 May 2022 at the New Orleans Marriott in New Orleans, Louisiana.  Preliminary programs and registration details will be posted on the AMS website in Late February 2022.  General information on hotel accommodations will soon be available on the AMS website.

Papers are solicited on all aspects of tropical meteorology and oceanography, including the following traditional topics:

  • Air-Sea Interaction
  • Climate Change in the Tropics
  • Convection
  • Data Assimilation
  • El Nino/Southern Oscillation
  • Extratropical transition
  • Hazard Communication
  • Intraseasonal Variability
  • Large-scale Circulation
  • Monsoons
  • Numerical Modeling
  • Observing Systems and Strategies
  • Operational Forecasting
  • Tropical Cyclone Structure
  • Tropical Cyclone Rapid Intensification
  • Storm Surge
  • Tropical Cyclogenesis
  • Tropical Waves
  • Tropical-Extratropical Interactions

As well as the following topics submitted by members of the community:

  • Atmosphere, Ocean and Land Processes of the Indo-Pacific Maritime Continent;
  • Cyclogenesis and Rapid Intensification process in the North India Ocean: Theory, Observations and Predictability;
  • Digital Hurricane Consortium: Activities and Observations;
  • Effects of the Tibetan Plateau on Climate and Weather;
  • Honoring Professor T.N. Krishnamurti;
  • Honoring Professor Fuqing Zhang’s Contributions to Tropical Meteorology;
  • Hurricane Observations: Techniques for Data Integration, Visualization, and Mining;
  • NOAA Hurricane Forecast Improvement Program (HFIP);
  • Physical Parameterizations for Tropical Cyclone Prediction; 
  • Radiative Feedback in Tropical Cyclones and Tropical Convection;
  • Targeted Ocean Observing Studies for Improving Tropical Cyclone Intensity Forecasts;
  • The CPEX-AW Campaign: Early Science Results and Broader Applications;
  • Tropical Cyclone Intensity Change in Moderate Vertical Wind Shear: Mechanisms, Observations, and Predictability;
  • Turbulence-Resolving Simulations of Tropical Cyclones and High-Wind Boundary Layers

Requests for other special sessions should be addressed to the program chair.

AMS policy limits participants to one oral presentation each (you may submit more than one abstract but please note any additional will be assigned as posters).  Please submit abstracts electronically via the Web no later than 10 January 2022. A fee of $95.00 (payable by credit card or purchase order) will be charged at the time of submission of each abstract (refundable only if abstract is not accepted).  When submitting your abstract, you can indicate whether you prefer a poster or an oral presentation.  The availability of oral presentations, however, will depend on the number of submissions.

Authors of accepted presentations will be notified via e-mail by mid-February 2022. Instructions for formatting extended abstracts will be posted on the AMS website.  The non-student award extended abstracts (file size up to 10 MB) must be submitted electronically by 13 June 2022.  All abstracts, extended abstracts, and presentations (including the recordings of those who grant permission) will be made available on the AMS website.
