17th International Conference on Nucleation and Atmospheric Aerosols, August 13th-17th, 2007, Galway, Ireland

The Committee on Nucleation and Atmospheric Aerosols brings together scientists covering the following subject areas:

Nucleation Theory & Experiment: Studies of homogeneous, heterogeneous and ion induced nucleation including single or multicomponent system cluster formation and properties, condensation, and evaporation, and experimental, theoretical and computational investigations.

Tropospheric & Stratospheric Aerosols: Fundamental processes associated with tropospheric and stratospheric aerosols, especially related to global warming, acid rain, air quality and multi-phase chemistry.  Studies into aerosol concentrations and distributions, variability and long term trends. Focus on composition, hygroscopicity, thermodynamics, phase changes, physico-chemical properties, and optical properties.

Cloud Drop and Ice Nucleation: Fundamental processes related to droplet and ice-crystal activation, growth, cloud condensation nuclei and ice nuclei origin, composition, spatial and temporal distributions and loadings, experimental and theoretical studies.

Aerosol-Climate Interactions: Direct and indirect effects of atmospheric aerosols on radiative forcing and climate, remote sensing and regional to global scale climate modelling of aerosol impacts and feedback systems.

The 19th International Conference on Nucleation & Atmospheric Aerosols (ICNAA 2013) is one of a series held regularly at 3-4 year intervals. The conference is held in conjunction with the International Commission on Clouds and Precipitation (ICCP) conference, currently offset one year later to facilitate common attendance at both meetings. The 2012 ICCP will be held in Leipzig. Both conferences are now scheduled to be held at 4 year intervals.
