8th Annual Meeting of the European Meteorological Society ( EMS ) and the 7th European Conference on Applied Climatology (ECAC).

Amsterdam , The Netherlands
29 Sep- 3 Oct 2008 16 May 2008

underpinning theme of the 8th ECAC is adaptation to climate change.

The ECAC programme will comprise two themes:

- Adaptation to Climate: applications in support of decision making and spatial planning with respect to climatic conditions .


DOE ARM AVP Workshop on Advances in Airborne Instrumentation for Measuring Aerosols, Clouds, Radiation and Atmospheric State Parameters,

Champaign-Urbana , IL
14-16 Oct 2008 15 Aug 2008

goals: 1) identify the state-of-art measurement techniques for aerosols, clouds, radiation and atmospheric state parameters; 2) determine the emerging instruments and developing technologies in these areas that can be made flight ready and reach maturation within an approximately 1 year time period; 3) identify measurement needs for which there are gaps in existing airborne instruments that are needed to answer key science questions in climate science. The DOE AVP program expects that funding will be available for the testing and development of instruments that can be made flight ready within an approximately 1-year period in the next proposal call anticipated in January 2009. The results of this workshop will be used to help set future instrument priorities for the AVP program.
