Atmospheric Ice Nucleation Conference - Focus Meeting 9

16th Jan - 17th Jan 2017

Leeds

Continuing the success of its aerosol science related focus meetings, the Aerosol Society is launching its first Atmospheric Ice Nucleation Conference in January 2017 (Focus Meeting 9)

The occurrence of ice-nucleating aerosols in our atmosphere has a profound impact on the properties of supercooled clouds, and in turn, weather and climate. Research on this topic has expanded dramatically in the past decade, underpinned by advances in online and offline instruments capable of shedding light on the characteristics of these cloud-modifying aerosol particles.

Our vision is to bring together people with a range of expertise in this multidisciplinary field within one forum, with the common interest of ice nucleation in the atmosphere. We will provide an opportunity for like-minded scientists to discuss the challenges that still exist in our understanding of how aerosol particles can trigger freezing in clouds through a programme of talks from leading experts, poster presentations and hands on equipment demonstrations from our industry exhibitors.
