5th International GEOS-Chem Meeting
Monday May 2 to Thursday May 5, 2011
G115 Auditorium, Maxwell-Dworkin Building
Harvard University

GEOS-Chem is an open-source global model of atmospheric composition used by over 70 research groups around the world for a very wide range of applications. The 5th GEOS-Chem Meeting was held at Harvard on May 2-5, 2011 to provide an opportunity for the GEOS-Chem user community to share results, address problems, initiate collaborations, set new directions for model development, and contribute to model management and vision. Much beyond that, the meeting provided a general forum for discussion of cutting-edge issues in modeling atmospheric composition.

We acknowledge generous funding from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the US National Science Foundation (NSF), the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Electric Power Research Institude (EPRI), the Harvard University Committee on the Environment (HUCE), the Canadian Space Agency (CSA), and the UK National Center for Atmospheric Science (NCAS)
