NSF Workshop News, Reports, and Information

Detecting the Atmospheric Response to the Changing Face of the Earth: A Focus on Human-Caused Regional Climate Forcings, Land-Cover/Land-Use Change, and Data Monitoring, August 27-29, 2007 Boulder, CO

UPDATE: The deadline for submission of manuscripts is September 30, 2008, however, earlier submissions are welcomed.

NOTE: As a follow up to this workshop, two journal special issues are being planned. The first special issue generally dealing with papers under the climate theme will be through the International Journal of Climatology. The second special issue dealing with mesoscale, boundary layer processes will be through Boundary-Layer Meteorology.The call for submitting original papers is open to the larger community and not restricted to those who participated in the August Workshop. Authors interested in submitting a paper to either of these special issues can contact Dev Niyogi at for additional information.
