We are pleased to announce that the American Meteorological Society's annual meeting, held January 6-10, 2013 in Austin, TX, USA, will include a session on Advances in Estimating Evaporation, Evaporative Demand, and Associated Applications as part of the 27th Conference on Hydrology.
We are pleased to announce that the American Meteorological Society's
annual meeting, held January 6-10, 2013 in Austin, TX, USA, will
include a session on Advances in Estimating Evaporation, Evaporative
Demand, and Associated Applications as part of the 27th Conference on
The session will focus on: advances in the estimation of evapotranspiration (ET) from land surfaces and water bodies and atmospheric evaporative demand (Eo) across a broad range of space and time scales and techniques, from in-situ observations to remote sensing and modeling. Specific topics addressed by presenters at this session might include: * the estimation of ET from various perspectives: remote sensing platforms, ground-based point observations and parameterizations, plant-based experimentation, and water budgets. This might include thermal modeling techniques, remote sensing data assimilation into land-surface models, development of ET climatologies, synthesis and model comparison; * the proper (and improper) estimation of Eo, with particular focus on its implications for variability and secular trends; * estimation of ET in operational applications (e.g., reservoir operations, streamflow forecasting, drought monitoring); * physical feedbacks across the land surface-atmosphere interface; * future remote sensing missions and needs from the perspective of the ET community; * Eo as an input to operational LSMs to derive ET (e.g., in streamflow forecasting), analyze droughts, schedule crop irrigation, and as a metric of secular trends and variability in hydroclimate.
We encourage you to submit an abstract by the deadline of August 1, 2012. For online abstract submission go to the AMS annual meetings page: <http://www.ametsoc.org/MEET/annual>, select “Call for papers,” then select “Submit abstract,” and then select “27th Conference on Hydrology.” A topic list will follow, including the name of this session, from which to make the session selection.
There is a $95 USD abstract submission fee charged by AMS which must be paid at the time of submission. Conference organizers are not allowed to accept submissions without advance payment. For additional details, see the Call for Papers from the AMS annual meetings homepage. You may also contact me or the other conveners if your questions are not answered by the online resources.
We hope that you can join us in Austin!
