The 22th AeroCom / 11th AeroSAT meeting

was held as (hybrid) meeting at Pasco, WA, USA
and hosted by Susannah Borrows and Andrew Gettelman

the 2023 program

the 2023 abstracts


key AeroCom/AeroSAT topics at the 2023 workshop were

  • Update on AeroCom and AeroSAT
  • Recent decadal aerosol trends and RF (model and observations)
  • Aerosol cloud interactions
  • Constraining aerosol properties and aerosol typing (beyond OPAC)
  • Processes in dust, maritime aerosol, wildfire and smoke
  • Challenges in deriving (global PM) air quality from satellites
  • Challenges in aerosol modeling from CMIP6 and other activities
  • Regional aerosol effects
  • Generalised aerosol chemistry host model interfaces
  • Machine learning for aerosol parameterisations and scenarios

presentations of this and all previous
meetings can be accessed via the AeroCom website



The primary objective of AeroCom meetings is to share and participate in efforts
to untangle the complexity in bottom-up aerosol component modules
in global modeling. Better process understanding is addressed through either
common experiments with harmonized input, assumptions and parameterizations
or data constraints from observations. The data aspect is also the major reason
to co-locate AeroCom and AeroSAT for exchange on data potential and data needs.


The primary purpose of the AeroSAT meeting is to assess the state-of-the-art
of satellite aerosol retrievals and products, brainstorm ideas, and develop
consensus as much as possible. AeroSAT is designed as a meeting of experts.
So, as is our practice, the meeting format will feature brief overview talks on
key issues, occasional updates on specific new developments, chairperson-
presented discussion points, and ample time for discussion, Thus, presentations
on individual scientific work are deferred to poster-presentations.
Oral seed presentations at the start of each session are by invitation
- to provide a broader overview
- to introduce new approaches and
- to stimulate subsequent discussions on related issues and challenges
