Welcome to the 44th Annual European Meeting for Atmospheric Studies by Optical Methods

Join us 4-8 September 2017 in Barcelona, Spain (Catalonia!)

The Annual Meetings (AM) have been held every year without interruption since the early 1970s and attract scientists and graduate students from all European countries as well as Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, and the USA. The meetings aim to exchange experiences, share scientific results, as well as plan and coordinate ongoing and future research. Europe and its collaborators have a vibrant and diverse research community studying all aspects of the Earth’s atmosphere from ground level to space using optical methods, both active and passive. The 44th annual meeting will cover all aspects of atmospheric optical science, the various atmospheric layers (troposphere, stratosphere, mesosphere, thermosphere), aerosols, clouds, airglows, dusty plasmas, the aurora, lightning, sprites, jets and elves, as well as instrument calibration.

Barcelona is that beautiful Mediterranean city known for the architecture of Gaudí, the lively Rambla and old quarters!
