  Information - AS1.10 Dynamics and chemistry of atmospheric moist convection

Event Information
The goal of this session is to organize a joint forum for the wide range
of communities concerned with atmospheric convection and its various
aspects: both dynamics and chemistry, especially emphasizing the
importance of cloud physics and radiation. It is intended to bring
together observers, modelers, forecasters, and theoreticians.
Moist convection is the most important weather phenomena in the tropical
atmosphere, and the crucial component in large--scale processes such as
monsoons, Madden--Julian waves, ENSO. Its contribution to surface
rainfall in the mid-latitudes during summer, with or without coupling to
the synoptic-scale dynamics, is significant. Forecasting intense
precipitation events strongly hinges on our understanding of moist
convection. Furthermore, the vertical transport of chemical species by
moist convection affects global atmosphere chemistry.
A wide range of contributions will be accepted not only from those
directly dealing with moist convection, but also from those studying
mesoscale processes where convection plays a significant role, as well
as tropical and mid-latitude cyclones, tropical meteorology, and climate
