  The 22nd Symposium on Boundary Layers and Turbulence, sponsored by the American Meteorological Society, and organized by the AMS Committee on Boundary Layers and Turbulence, will be held 20–24 June 2016, in conjunction with the 32nd Conference on Agricultural and Forest Meteorology and the 3rd Conference on Atmospheric Biogeosciences at the Sheraton, Salt Lake City hotel, Salt Lake City, Utah.  A preliminary program, registration, hotel, and general information will be posted on the AMS website (http://www.ametsoc.org) by late January 2016.

            Papers and posters will be invited on all subjects dealing with atmospheric boundary layers and turbulence including observational, modeling, theoretical, and applied studies.  We anticipate and invite presentations and posters addressing some of the following themes:

    Boundary layer processes, observations and modeling related to renewable energy applications
    Boundary layer clouds
    Exchange of trace gases (CO2, BVOC, Nitrogen) between the surface and the PBL for forest and urban ecosystems (with Agricultural and Forest Meteorology)
    Modeling and observations in heterogeneous, complex, and urban terrain (with Agricultural and Forest Meteorology)
    Boundary layer parameterizations in models at all scales
    Theoretical and practical issues associated with multi-scale simulations
    Land-surface-PBL coupling, impact of heterogeneity as seen in modeling and observations (with Agricultural and Forest Meteorology)
    Unsteady boundary layer behavior
    Recent field experiments

The $95 abstract fee includes the submission of your abstract, the posting of your extended abstract, and the uploading and recording of your presentation, which will be archived on the AMS Web site.
