The program committee for this conference seeks contributions on all aspects of mountain meteorology, including but not limited to:

  • A Session in Honor of Dr. James Doyle

  • Applications of mountain meteorology (e.g. air quality, fire dynamics, wind resource assessment, and winter sports forecasting)

  • Boundary layers and turbulence in complex terrain

  • Climate change and variability over complex terrain

  • Diurnal mountain winds and cold-air pools

  • Dynamics and physics of orographic clouds and precipitation

  • Education, outreach, diversity, inclusion and equity in mountain meteorology

  • The mountain cryosphere (snowpack, glaciers, avalanches)

  • Mountain hydrology and ecology

  • Mountain waves and airflow dynamics

  • New or emerging topics in mountain meteorology

  • Numerical weather prediction, data assimilation, and forecasting in complex terrain

Individuals wishing to contribute to the Education, Outreach, Diversity, Inclusion and Equity in Mountain Meteorology session through an abstract submission.
