As is the tradition for this conference, the program will include a wide range of topics and new developments in the field of atmospheric chemistry. The field is increasingly challenged in the pursuit to apply fundamental chemistry knowledge to improve understanding of multiphase atmospheric processes and their impacts across scales. This conference will focus on new developments in our understanding from the molecular level to global impacts. In general, the conference will provide a forum for discussion of a broad range of atmospheric chemistry topics, from development of new tools and instruments to societal impacts. We endeavor to make the conference exciting and engaging to all by encouraging presentations and discussions that connect theoretical and computational chemistry to laboratory kinetics and mechanistic studies and to field observations, testing our understanding with models. The conference will be attended by those participating in ACCESS XVI, the Sixteenth Atmospheric Chemistry Colloquium for Emerging Senior Scientists, which will be held at Brookhaven National Laboratory, New York immediately before the GRC.
The conference will consist of nine sessions, on the topics listed below. The conference chair is currently developing their preliminary program, which will include the names of the invited speakers and discussion leaders for each of these sessions.
