The Twelfth Symposium on Fire and Forest Meteorology, sponsored by the American Meteorological Society and organized by the AMS Committee on Agricultural and Forest Meteorology, will be held 15-18 May 2018 at the Boise Centre, downtown Boise, Idaho. It will be concurrent with the 33rd Conference on Agricultural and Forest Meteorology, and the 4th Conference on Atmospheric Biogeosciences.
The theme of the symposium will be research, new techniques and technologies and/or changes in the areas of but not limited to: (1) utilization of weather and climate information in relation to wildland fire; (2) operational forecasting (short- to long-term) of fire weather; (3) model studies and development, including theoretical models, coupled fire-atmosphere models and mesoscale models; (4) use and assessment of meteorological information in fire management planning; (5) decision support tool development; (6) smoke modeling, management and mitigation; (7) improvements to fire danger and fire behavior systems that utilize meteorology; and (8) field studies of fire-atmosphere interactions.
Abstracts are due by 19 January 2018, and can be submitted online here.
