The National Centre for Atmospheric Science and the Royal Meteorological Society are proud to release the full programme for the UK Atmospheric Science Conference 2019.
The conference is a unique two-day event that is gaining influence in the global science community. On 2nd and 3rd July, experts will share emerging research in climate change, air pollution and weather, through over 50 talks, lively poster and workshops sessions.
This year, the UK Atmospheric Science Conference plays host to some of the most exciting researchers from around the world. There are representatives from the UK Met Office, Public Health England, National Climate Information Centre as well as leading UK universities and the National Centre for Atmospheric Science.
Prof. Stephen Mobbs, Executive Director of the National Centre for Atmospheric Science, said “Atmospheric science has never been more relevant to society. Once again, we aim to showcase the latest developments across the breadth of atmospheric science in a way which reaches across disciplines.”
The programme aims to find a balance between a number of socially relevant research topics, and underline the importance of working together across the remit of atmospheric science.
Dr. Helen Dacre, Prof. Frank Kelly, Prof. Hayley Fowler, Prof. Adam Scaife, Michael Kendon and Prof. Rowan Sutton will be delivering keynote speeches at the event, covering topics including UK emissions, cyclones, and rainfall extremes. A full list of speaker biographies is available in the 2019 Book of Speakers.
