Gordon Research Conference

Addressing the Complexity of Our Atmosphere Through Integration Across Scales


July 30 - August 4, 2017


Grand Summit Hotel at Sunday River
Newry, ME Site Information


Kim Prather

Vice Chairs:
Neil M. Donahue & Ronald C. Cohen

Application Deadline

Applications for this meeting must be submitted by July 2, 2017. Please apply early, as some meetings become oversubscribed (full) before this deadline. If the meeting is oversubscribed, it will be stated here. Note: Applications for oversubscribed meetings will only be considered by the Conference Chair if more seats become available due to cancellations.

Meeting Description

As is the tradition for this conference, the 2017 meeting will include a broad range of topics and new developments in the field of atmospheric chemistry. Changes to the atmosphere are occurring at an unprecedented rate due to a rapidly growing global population and thus the field of atmospheric chemistry faces new challenges. This conference will provide a forum for an open and provocative discussion of major gaps in the field with a focus on how we can improve our understanding and predictive ability of the atmosphere through integration of fundamental laboratory studies with field observations and models. This meeting will specifically focus on aerosol-cloud interactions, ice nucleation, biosphere-atmosphere feedbacks, integration of measurements and models, indoor air quality, aerobiology, and fundamental gas and heterogeneous reaction processes. The conference will be attended by those participating in ACCESS XIIII, the Fourteenth Atmospheric Chemistry Colloquium for Emerging Senior Scientists, which will be held at Brookhaven National Laboratory, New York immediately before the GRC.


Preliminary Program

The topics and speakers for the conference sessions are displayed below (italics denote discussion leaders). The Conference Chair is currently developing their detailed program, which will include the complete meeting schedule, as well as the talk titles for all speakers. The detailed program will be available by March 30, 2017. Please check back for updates.
