1st QuIESCENT Workshop

The first workshop of the QuIESCENT Arctic programme will take place on 4-5 April 2019 at the British Antarctic Survey (Cambridge, UK), thanks to the air Pollution in the Arctic: Climate, Environment, and Societies (PACES) initiative and the International Association of Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences (IAMAS)

Our inaugural workshop will bring together observational scientists and modellers to discuss the key challenges in quantifying the indirect effect in the Arctic. We will explore the role of local and distant aerosol sources in influencing cloud microphysics, with a focus on the effect of Arctic air pollution.

This 2-day workshop will include presentations from each discipline represented. Prospective participants should propose what they feel the key outstanding challenges in quantifying Arctic aerosol-cloud interactions are in their field and how their work is addressing these concerns.

We welcome participants covering a wide range of expertise (ground-based, aircraft, satellite observations, and modelling); however, we would like to strongly encourage submissions from Early Career Researchers and scientists with interdisciplinary interests. Members of recent Arctic measurement campaigns are also encouraged to attend.

The QuIESCENT workshop is free to attend thanks to support from the International Arctic Science Committee's Atmosphere Working Group. All workshop participants will have the opportunity to present in poster or oral formats.

Deadline: Fri 14th December 2018
