Davos Atmosphere and Cryosphere Assembly DACA-13

Air, Ice & Process Interactions

Event Type: 
Conferences and Workshops
8 July 2013 to 12 July 2013
Davos, Switzerland

The conference will bring together some 1200 scientists from both fields to present and discuss the latest research in separate or joint sessions. A large variety of topics will be covered, from ice-sheet modelling to extreme climate events, from solar UV radiation to avalanche formation and permafrost – be sure to contribute and benefit from the possibility to extend your network and meet excellent scientists from a wide range of fields.

DACA-13 offers a platform to discuss the latest developments in atmospheric and cryospheric research. The overall theme “Air, Ice & Process Interactions” implies that it has been recognized that many of the key challenges concerning global environmental change lie at the interface of traditional disciplines. The atmosphere and the cryosphere are particularly important and vulnerable in this context. Attention will therefore be given to atmospheric and cryospheric processes with the aim to also emphasize the many interactions that exist between the atmosphere and the cryosphere.
