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.

Wanted: Volunteers for the AS Section Fall Meeting Program Committee

The Atmospheric Sciences (AS) Section of AGU is seeking volunteers to serve on the Fall Meeting Program Committee. This committee is responsible for developing and organizing the scientific program for the fall meeting. Specifically, AS is seeking volunteers with expertise in any area of atmospheric science, but especially needed are those with expertise in atmospheric chemistry and aerosols, land-atmosphere interactions, cloud processes, and tropical dynamics. Also, graduate student volunteers are encouraged to apply. Please send an expression of interest, along with a CV, to Jim Hurrell (jhurrell@rams.colostate.edu) by 10 July, 2020.

Please support Atmospheric Sciences when you renew your AGU membership.

AGU has implemented an incentive program to increase AGU member donations and at the same time increase AGU's support of the sections. AS supports monetary awards for the AS Early Career Awardees and travel to the AGU Fall meeting for AS students and early career members, especially those from developing countries.
