Hi all, it is that time of year, and as the deadline looms in front of us I
would like to invite those you who study the past/present/future processes
and impacts of light absorbing (and other) particles in snow and ice to
submit to session C014: Dust, Black Carbon, and other Aerosols in the

*Session ID#: * 7821
Recent observation and modeling efforts have established the powerful
region impacts on snow and ice cover from the deposition of light absorbing
impurities such as mineral dust and carbonaceous particles.  The subsequent
darkening of the snow surface and initiation of snow albedo feedbacks has
implications for the global climate and water cycle. This session will
focus on observations and modeling of the past, present, and future impacts
of dust, carbonaceous particles, and other aerosols on snow and ice cover
including transport and deposition processes, snowmelt, glacier/ice sheet
mass balance, and atmospheric heating. (Cross listed with Atmospheric
Sciences and Hydrology.)

Conveners: McKenzie Skiles, Thomas Painter, Mark Flanner, and John Burkhart


Looking forward to seeing you in December!
