ACOM Seminars

The ACOM Seminar series is an opportunity for NCAR staff and visitors to share scientific information that is of general interest to the Atmospheric Chemistry Observations & Modeling Laboratory. Seminars are typically held on Monday afternoons with a reception at 3:15 pm and the seminar starting at 3:30 pm in the main seminar room at the Foothills Laboratory (FL2-1022). Seminars may be held at other times and locations to accommodate interesting speakers whose schedules don't fit the normal schedule.

The seminars are organized by the ACOM seminar committee, which includes: John Ortega, Lisa Kaser, and Mike Mills. If you would like to present a seminar, have a visitor who would like to present a seminar or have a suggestion for a seminar speaker or topic that we should cover, then please contact one of them or send us an e-mail.

To subscribe to our mailing list and receive notification of upcoming seminars, please e-mail: seminar-committee@acom.ucar.edu .
