Gordon Research Conference — Radiation and Climate

21st July 2019   -   26th July 2019
Bates College, Lewiston, United States


The 2019 Gordon Research Conference on Radiation and Climate will focus on critical topics for radiation and climate science, with a theme of bridging spatial and temporal scales. Since physical processes related to radiation and climate occur on scales from the microscale to the global, and from seconds to ice ages, bridging observations and modeling between such scales is challenging but crucial. Each range of spatial and temporal scales adds knowledge and understanding. Topics of this conference will include: ice and liquid clouds, aerosols, climate sensitivity, dynamics, greenhouse gases and the Arctic. Each topic will be discussed from the perspectives of various contrasting scales with a focus on measurement, modeling and theory to analyze critical radiation and climate questions. Posters are invited on all of these topics, with selected posters also presented orally. As is custom with Gordon Research Conferences, there will be time for discussion, reflection and interaction across disciplines and with participants of the related Gordon Research Seminar (GRS).
