In our continuing effort to stay abreast of recent observations concerning trace gases, aerosols, radiation, ozone, and climate forcing and to provide a forum in which these observations can be relayed and discussed, we will be presenting the ESRL monitoring and research results of the past year. The meeting is not limited to ESRL reports and includes observations related to these themes by both independent and cooperative investigators, and other national and international programs. We welcome your active participation at this annual conference.

The 43rd Global Monitoring Annual Conference will be held May 19-20, 2015.

For oral presenters, the conference sessions follow standard AGU format (15 minutes per presentation). The 15 minutes is broken down into 12 minutes for the speaker and 3 minutes for Q&A with the audience. The time schedule will be strictly adhered to, please plan accordingly and limit your presentation to roughly 12-14 slides.

For poster presenters, we will collect posters from you at the check-in table beginning at the start of the conference. Please deliver posters to this table by the end of the lunch break on Tuesday, May 19th for the poster session that afternoon. Poster space is restricted to 4ft x 4ft (48in x 48in). Please print your poster to fit within the allocated space. GMD will print posters for foreign participants: please email your poster files at least a week prior to the meeting.
