Frontiers in Oceanic, Atmospheric, and Cryospheric Boundary Layers

Coordinators: Baylor Fox-Kemper, Daria Halkides, Brad Marston, and Fiamma Straneo

This 5-day conference will focus on the state-of-the-art in boundary layer research, ranging from information gaps that are the subject of ongoing research to the latest frontiers, and the anticipated direction of boundary layer science in the near future. Presentations will address boundary layers from multiple perspectives, including observational, experimental, theoretical, and computational representations in oceans, atmospheres and ice, both on Earth and extra-terrestrial bodies, with the aims of identifying cross-disciplinary connections and fostering interdisciplinary collaborations.

PLEASE NOTE: During the conference there will be an opportunity to present a poster. If you are interested in presenting a poster please visit the conference website and submit your title and abstract. Each poster board is 4 feet high x 6 feet wide. We ask that the posters be no larger than 44 inches high x 34 inches wide at the most.
