Announcement: SPARC Gravity Wave Symposium

Find meeting webpage

We cordially invite you to save the dates on your calendar for the 2021 SPARC Gravity Wave Symposium now scheduled to be the week of 27 September—1 October 2021 starting on the morning of September 27th and departing after lunch Friday October 1st on the Westend (downtown) campus of the Goethe University Frankfurt in Frankfurt/Main, Germany:

This SPARC symposium is a continuation of a series of successful similar GW meetings lead-organized by Kevin Hamilton, Joan Alexander, Kaoru Sato, Fuqing Zhang and others over the past couple of decades. The tentative title of the next year’s symposium will be “Atmospheric gravity waves: towards a next-generation representation in weather and climate models”. Research on all aspects of atmospheric gravity waves, including newly emerging topics, will be welcomed but some particular emphases will be given to measurements, simulations, and numerical and theoretical developments, especially those confronting, challenging, and advancing the present-day treatment of gravity waves in atmospheric models.

Further logistics will be forthcoming but at this point we would like you to save the dates, and also please preregister on the web site below which will guide us in negotiating how many rooms and seats are needed for the symposium. We understand at this point your response will not be binding. The web-site address is:

Please also feel free to forward this announcement to whoever might be interested. Your help in this regard would be appreciated. We also apologize for the case you are receiving the announcement several times.

Co-conveners: Ulrich Achatz, Joan Alexander, and Kaoru Sato
Meeting secretary: Aurelia Müller

We look forward to your participation.

Best regards, and stay healthy,

Ulrich, Joan, and Kaoru
