Composition-Climate Interaction Meeting
Seventh Annual Composition-Climate Interaction meeting
The Seventh Annual Composition-Climate Interaction meeting will take place on 20-21 March 2019 at the Met Office, Exeter, EX1 3PB.
The meeting aims to bring together UK scientists from universities, research centres and the Met Office working on all aspects of atmospheric composition and the interaction with climate and the Earth system, including atmospheric chemistry, aerosols and land surface interactions. The event will provide an opportunity to present and discuss the latest UK research on all aspects of atmospheric composition. Invited and open presentations will cover new science with the UKCA model, other chemistry-climate models, and other components of Earth system models. A poster session will allow further presentation and discussion of a wide range of research in this area.
There will be four oral sessions with the following themes:
- Atmospheric composition in the Earth System
- Atmosphere-biosphere interactions
- Regional-scale composition and interactions
- Model evaluation and observational constraints

Bursary for early career scientists
A limited number of bursaries to subsidise the cost of attending the meeting (travel, and accommodation) are available for Early Career Scientists with limited alternative sources of funding. Early career scientists are usually regarded as being within 5 years of degree or submission of PhD, or equivalent part time work. A decision on who receives a bursary will be decided by the scientific steering committee in consultation with NCAS. Early career scientists can apply as part of their registration for the meeting and are required to provide:
- An estimate and breakdown of the cost of travel and accommodation
- A short summary of their current research (Max 300 words)
- A short statement explaining their need for financial support
- A short supporting statement explaining what they hope to get out of the meeting
Priority will be given to early career scientists with limited alternative sources of funding.
