Atmospheric Sciences

About Atmospheric Sciences

The Atmospheric Sciences Section studies the physics, chemistry, and dynamics of the atmosphere, particularly the two layers closest to Earth’s surface, the stratosphere and troposphere. These layers are crucial to life because they regulate the planetary surface temperature, play an integral role in the world’s water cycle, and screen the planet from high-energy radiation.

Modeling Convection, Cloud, and Climate Systems: A Symposium in Honor of Professor Akio Arakawa

October 17-18th 2022, Los Angeles, California

This two-day symposium will foster scientific exchange in the fields of moist convection and clouds and climate modeling, to honor the contributions of Professor Akio Arakawa. A set of invited talks will provide the broad context for discussion and poster sessions that reflect the advancements and explore new directions in the areas to which he contributed, and to engage and inspire students and early career scientists to pursue careers in climate modeling and related areas.

Student Support

A limited number of travel scholarships are available to partially fund graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to attend the symposium. Applications must be received soon by September 5th, 2022 for travel support consideration through this link.
