Meeting Description

The goal of the Biogenic Hydrocarbons and the Atmosphere GRC is to enhance our understanding of the incredible diversity and function of the exchange of organic molecules between the biosphere and the atmosphere and the impact that this exchange has on organismal and ecosystem function, atmospheric chemistry, and climate processes. The multidisciplinary nature of this conference covers a wide-range of topics ranging from plant and microbial physiological ecology, atmospheric chemistry, aerosol dynamics, modeling and climate science, reflecting the wide diversity of disciplines required to understand Earth's coupled Biosphere-Atmosphere system. The 2016 Biogenic Hydrocarbons and the Atmosphere GRC will continue its tradition of providing an engaging format for researchers to discuss recent findings and develop new understandings of the diversity and roles of biogenic compounds and their impact on atmospheric chemistry and climate, with a focus on identifying key unknowns and establishing collective priorities for advancing the science of atmospheric organics in the 21st century.

The conference will bring together a collection of investigators who are at the forefront of their field, and will provide opportunities for junior scientists and graduate students to interactively present their work and exchange ideas with established senior scientists. Further, a special session will provide a small group of early career scientists (graduate students and post-doctoral scholars) to give short oral research presentations of their latest research. The collegial and inter-disciplinary atmosphere of this Conference, with programmed discussion sessions, as well as opportunities for informal gatherings in the afternoons and evenings, provides an excellent venue for scientists from a diversity of disciplines to brainstorm and connect in an effort to support existing and develop new collaborations across scientific fields.
