2016 COAA AMS Session
Dear COAA members and friends,
We would like to draw your attention to a COAA co-sponsored and co-convened joint session, entitled "Part II of Special Sessions on US-International Partnerships: Joint Research and Coordinated Observations in Hydrometeorology, Extremes and High-Impact Events in the US and Asia," as a part of the upcoming 2016 AMS Annual Meeting to be held during January 10-14 in New Orleans, Louisiana. This is the first time for COAA to have such a formal appearance in major professional conferences. This is also a great opportunity for Chinese scientists from different countries/regions (Mainland China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and other regions) in this field to present research results at this special AMS session and to interact with our fellow colleagues in the US and other parts of Asia.
We strongly encourage you to consider submitting an abstract to this session. Your contribution is vital to its success. Please feel free to forward the information to your colleagues working in the topic-related area.
To submit an abstract, go to the following link and select "Joint Session: Part II of Special Sessions on US-International Partnerships: Joint Research and Coordinated Observations in Hydrometeorology, Extremes and High-Impact Events in the US and Asia". https://ams.confex.com/ams/96Annual/30hydro/papers/index.cgi. We are looking forward to a big turnout of COAA members and friends in the 2016 AMS annual meeting!
The abstracts are due August 3, 2015.
Joint Session: Part II of Special Sessions on US-International Partnerships: Joint Research and Coordinated Observations in Hydrometeorology, Extremes and High-Impact Events in the US and Asia
Hydrometeorological disasters are the most recurring and devastating natural hazards in the world, directly impacting human lives and causing severe economic damage through property loss. The US and Asia face similar challenges in observing, understanding and forecasting hydrometeorological events, in particularly associated with extremes and high-impact events. This session is aimed at fostering and promoting communications and collaborations among US and Asian countries through information exchange on science advances, technology and infrastructure capabilities, data, and common practices. We invite contributions dealing with all aspects of hydrometeorological studies including in-situ and satellite observation, data assimilation, atmospheric and hydrologic process studies and modeling, and weather and hydrologic forecasting on timescales from days to seasons. We particularly welcome US-Asian joint research in those areas.
