The 1st GEOS-Chem Europe meeting (GCE1) will be held on June 22-24 in Leeds, UK at the National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) organised by Mathew Evans (York), Eloise Marais (Leicester), and Paul Palmer (Edinburgh). GEOS-Chem is a global model of atmospheric composition used by a large research community worldwide for a very wide range of applications. This is the first GEOS-Chem meeting in Europe to benefit the European community using GEOS-Chem and to supplement the International GEOS-Chem meetings (IGC) held at Harvard in alternate years.

The scope of GCE1 will encompass all topics of research in atmospheric composition and air quality, not restricted to Europe. All research scientists, students, and stakeholders worldwide are welcome to attend and contribute presentations. For GEOS-Chem users, the meeting will provide a platform for sharing information about the model and its applications, learning about new model developments, and initiating collaborations. Model tutorials for new and experienced users will also be offered.

GCE1 will be over 2.5 days, adjourning on Day 3 at midday.

  • Day 1 (mid-morning): GEOS-Chem overview talks
  • Day 1 (afternoon): keynote presentation, science talks, model tutorials, poster session
  • Day 2 (morning): keynote presentation, science talks
  • Day 2 (afternoon): keynote presentation, science talks, model tutorials, poster session
  • Day 3 (morning): science talks, general discussion on model development priorities

A meeting agenda will be developed and posted on this site in due course. For questions regarding the meeting please contact Mathew Evans (Professor of Atmospheric Chemistry at York, GEOS-Chem Steering Committee member and local(ish) host) or Eloise Marais (Associate Professor of Earth Observations at Leicester and GEOS-Chem Steering Committee member based in the UK).

We look forward to seeing you in Leeds in June 2020!
