AMS 32nd Conference on Agricultural and Forest Meteorology

June 20, 2016 @ 8:00 am - June 24, 2016 @ 5:00 pm

The abstract submission deadline of AMS 32nd Conference on Agricultural and Forest Meteorology is February 8.  The Conference will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, 20 – 24 June 2016, joint with 22nd Symposium on Boundary Layers and Turbulence, the Third Conference on Biogeosciences, and a special session for Bill Massman.

You can find topics you might be interested in bellow:


Measuring and modeling terrestrial ecosystem responses to climate change      

  • Upscaling flux measurements to regional, continental and global scale
  • Integrating land surface measurements into biogeochemical models
  • Climate controls of carbon, water, energy, and nutrient cycling from leaf to globe
  • Microbial controls of biogeochemical cycling
  • Nitrogen and methane cycles in a changing climate
  • Inland water biogeochemical and energy exchange and its regional and global implications

Changing Land-Use in Forest and Agricultural Regions   

  • Land use and land cover in semi-arid ecosystems
  • Vegetation change in boreal and arctic ecosystems
  • Changes in land use from field crops to biofuel crops
  • Tropical forests in a changing climate
  • Mapping terrestrial biome productions (GPP)

Impacts of climate extreme on forest and agricultural systems 

  • Global and regional water-food-energy security in a changing climate
  • Forest disturbance, health, and biogeochemical cycle in a changing climate
  • Responses to the effects of drought on agriculture
  • Extreme climate events and natural disasters in tropical systems

Adaptation of cities to climate change  

  • Impacts of urban plumes on forest and agricultural ecosystems
  • Water, energy and society in urban systems
  • Observing and modeling urban transport of carbon & pollutants
  • Urban-atmosphere exchange and PBL evolution
  • Micrometeorological processes, transport and dispersion within and above plant and urban canopies

Understanding and uncertainties in measuring and modeling ecosystem-atmosphere exchanges            

  • Canopy flows in stable conditions
  • Issues and new perspectives in eddy covariance measurements
  • Boundary layer processes over complex terrain and heterogeneous surfaces
  • Novel instruments and systems for measuring ecosystem -atmosphere exchanges
  • New theory, ideas and approaches in understanding ecosystem -atmosphere exchanges

Campbell Scientific is located in Logan, Utah, about 80 miles north of Salt Lake City (1.5 hour drive). Campbell promised to support a field trip for conference attendees to visit and see the manufacturing processes and quality, calibration, and testing. We are also planning to have some near-by beautiful sight-seeing (BBQ) with this field trip. A complete plan and schedule must be after the deadline of abstract submission!
