ARL Prepares for 2023 AGU Meeting
December 7, 2023
Presentations on arctic amplification of climate change, air quality, and western hydrology during a season of intense atmospheric rivers are just a few of the topics covered by ARL research at the 2023 AGU annual meeting that begins next week. The AGU23 is an influential conference dedicated to the advancement of Earth and space sciences. This year AGU is held in San Francisco, California as well as virtually.
Posters cover topics ranging from fire weather forecasting and parameterizations of western regions to methane emissions in the arctic, mercury measurements, and ozone measurements, including:
- GH33B-1058 Development and evaluation of a machine learning based wildfire spread prediction model for regional air quality forecasting by first author Wei-Ting Hung, NOAA Air Resources Laboratory, College Park, United States.
- B53I-1993 Decadal Changes in Carbon Dioxide and Methane Emissions from Arctic Ecotopes by first author David Sayres, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, United States.
- H41J-1891Observations of diurnal and seasonal variation of heat fluxes and an evaluation of bulk Richardson parameterization in the East River Watershed, Colorado by first author Sreenath Paleri, Cooperative Institute for Severe and High-Impact Weather Research and Operations, University of Oklahoma and NOAA Air Resources Laboratory, Boulder, United States.
- H23L-1746 Soil Moisture Measurements Obtained in Colorado’s East River Valley Watershed during the SPLASH Campaign, first author: Janet M Intrieri, NOAA Boulder, Boulder, CO.
- B13I-2008 Hg Isotopic Compositions of Gaseous Elemental Mercury (GEM) at the Mauna Loa Observatory (MLO), Hawaii, USA. First author: Akane Yamakawa, National Institute of Environmental Studies, Ibaraki, Japan.
