Abstract Submission

Dear Colleagues,

The draft agenda for the 3rd A-Train Symposium.  Updates to the agenda will be posted on this site.

We apologize if your abstract was not selected for oral presentation; we were able to accommodate only half of the requests for oral talks. All abstracts are accepted for poster presentation; your poster will be displayed for the full 3 days, and there are two poster sessions to provide ample opportunity to interact with your colleagues.  Instructions on poster size, numbering, and mounting will be provided at a later date.

We look forward to seeing you in Pasadena in April.  This promises to be a very interesting and enjoyable Symposium.

The A-Train Organizing Committee


The Symposium will emphasize science capabilities and advancements realized from 10+ years’ worth of data gathered by the A-Train’s multi-sensor system. Particular emphasis will be placed on analyses of climatic trends and inter-annual variability. Morning plenary sessions will include invited keynote talks, while afternoon sessions will include selected oral talks and posters aligned with the four theme areas below: 

  • Atmospheric composition and chemistry
  • Aerosol particles, clouds, radiation, and the hydrological cycle
  • Oceanic, terrestrial, and atmospheric components of the carbon cycle
  • Weather prediction and other operational applications

In the interest of expanding the Symposium's main themes, we welcome abstracts for a special session devoted to scientific advancements realized by other constellations and A-Train-like synergistic methods, as well as future constellation concepts and opportunities.
