SEPTEMBER 10~12 2013                                                                    UC DAVIS

The Air Quality Research Center at UC Davis is pleased to announce a new biennial 

conference supported by the California Air Resources Board. This conference will interest 

those involved in a wide array of research areas that utilize meteorological and climatological data. 

The primary focus will be on the modeling and prediction of regional climate and air quality - with a 

special emphasis on understanding what is “under the hood” - in the models and how to improve them

Sessions will cover: 

        * Meteorology Model Performance Issues

        * Complex Terrain and Topography

        * Numerical Methods

        * Cloud and Radiation Processes

        * Integrated Modeling

        * Climate Downscaling

        * BL Parameterizations and Grey-Zone Turbulence

        * Land-Surface Processes and Inverse Modeling

        * Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion Modeling

        * Wildfire and Prescribed Burn Meteorology
