GMU’s Comprehensive Atmospheric Modeling Program (CAMP) will host the 14th Annual George Mason University Conference on Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion Modeling. AOES faculty member and CAMP director Zafer Boybeyi is the Conference Chair.

Atmospheric transport is an important topic for understanding, mitigating, and adapting to natural hazards and pollution. Previous similar conferences at GMU have included hundreds of representatives from federal agencies, private companies, and universities as well as scientists from other countries. This year’s meeting is July 13-15, 2010.
