Meteorology And Climate - Modeling for Air Quality (MAC-MAQ)

SEPTEMBER 16~18 2015

The Air Quality Research Center at UC Davis is pleased to announce the second in a series of biennial

conferences supported by the California Air Resources Board on advances in meteorology and climate

modeling for air quality applications. This conference will interest those involved in a wide array of research

areas that utilize meteorological and climatological data. The primary focus will be on the modeling and

prediction of regional climate and meteorology as it relates to air quality - with a special emphasis on

understanding what is “under the hood” in the models and how to improve them

Sessions for our second conference will cover: 

        * Dynamical Modeling of Processes Across Scales

        * Complex Terrain Effects

        * Coastal Zone Meteorology Interactions with Air Quality

        * Convective and Stable BL Parameterizations and Grey-Zone Turbulence Issues

        * Land-Surface Processes and Urbanization

        * Cutting Edge Approaches to Coupled & Integrated Modeling

        * Aerosol Direct & Indirect Feedbacks and Aerosol Aware Microphysics

        * Model Evaluation Using Meteorological and Chemical Observations from Field Campaigns

        * Cloud and Radiation and Scale Dependent Microphysical Processes

        * Data Assimilation & Inverse Modeling

        * Wildfire and Prescribed Burn Processes and Effects

        * Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion Modeling

        * Ensemble Methods
