Third Conference on Atmospheric Biogeosciences, 20-24 June, 2015, Salt Lake City, UT

The 3rd Conference on Atmospheric Biogeosciences, sponsored by the American Meteorological Society, was held 20-24 June2016 at the Sheraton Downtown Salt Lake City hotel, Salt Lake City, Utah. This conference was organized by the AMS Board on Atmospheric Biogeosciences in collaboration with the Committee on Agricultural and Forest Meteorology, and was jointly held with the 32nd Conference on Agricultural and Forest Meteorology and the 22nd Symposium on Boundary Layer and Turbulence, including a joint session honoring Bill Massman’s contribution to the biometeorology and atmospheric biogeosciences. 

The conference’s theme, in coordination with the Agricultural and Forest Meteorology Conference, was the “Biosphere-atmosphere interactions of natural, agricultural, and urban landscapes in the context of past, current and future climates.”  Sample topics for abstracts included biogeochemical-atmosphere processes as affected by climate; biotic influences on atmospheric biogeochemistry (microbial; domesticated animals and plant agroecosystems, urban); trace gas exchanges; atmospheric-biogeochemical cycles in high latitudes; biogenic VOC and organic aerosols; primary biological particles/bioaerosols; aerobiology of spores, pollen and microbes; palynological studies associated with paleoclimatic simulations; linkages between hydrological cycles and biogeochemical cycles; coupled nitrogen, carbon, and other nutrient studies; emissions and uptake/deposition of trace gases and aerosols; stable isotopic applications to understanding hydrological, biogeochemical, and atmospheric linkages; remote sensing of atmospheric-biosphere processes; and the theory and modelling of coupled biogeochemical, biophysical, ecological, and atmospheric processes.

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

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