Website now open for the “Composition and Transport in the Tropical Troposphere and Lower Stratosphere Meeting” in Boulder, CO, USA, 20-23 July 2015

Deadline for applications for support: 15 May 2015
Deadline for abstract submission: 22 May 2015

The website for registration and abstract submission is now open for the open meeting titled "Composition and Transport in the Tropical Troposphere and Lower Stratosphere" to be held in Boulder, CO on 20-23 July, 2015:

The meeting will cover the role of the TTL in the climate system and the response of the TTL to future climate change. Susan Solomon and Graeme Stephens have kindly agreed to give invited talks. One aim is to identify open science questions and the future measurement strategies needed to address them, and all participants will be encouraged to come prepared.

The meeting will cover the science topics listed below and include oral and poster presentations. Analyses that combine ground-based, airborne, and satellite measurements, as well as the use of these observations for evaluation of large-scale models, are particularly welcome.

Science topics:

  1. Chemistry and transport processes controlling tropical tropospheric and stratospheric composition
  2. Measurement and model comparisons
  3. Clouds and water vapor

The deadline for abstract submission is May 22, 2015.

Limited support will be available for international participants and for students.
The deadline for applications for support is May 15, 2015
See the website for more details.

This meeting is held under the auspices of SPARC and IGAC.
