The IGAC Newsletter
The IGAC newsletter both engages and informs the international atmospheric chemistry community of IGAC Activities through Editorials, Workshop Summaries, Activity Updates, and Scientific Features. In addition, each issue of the IGAC Newsletter has a Young Scientist Spotlight that profiles an individual in graduate school or within 5 years of completing his/her doctorate. The Open Submission section allows non-IGAC Activities related to atmospheric chemistry to publish Workshop Summaries, Activity Updates, Scientific Features, and Editorials (see below). The IGAC Newsletter is typically published three times per year (March, July, and November).
Open Submission Guidelines
Editorials, Workshop Summaries, and Activity Updates should be approximately 600 words with a maximum of one figure. Scientific Features should be approximately 1500 words with one to two figures. Figures must be high-resolution .png files. The next deadline for submission to the July 2013 IGAC Newsletter is 30 June 2013. Please send submissions to email@example.com.
Current Issue - Vol. 49, March 2013
The March 2013 issue of the IGAC newsletter offers a synthesis of recent, current and upcoming initiatives and events within the field of atmospheric chemistry. Workshop and conference summaries, special features, and information on the present direction of the field are among the newsletter's highlights. Of particular note is a feature on the formative report, Bounding the Role of Black Carbon in the Climate System, as well as that on new and future CCMI community simulations.
