Ozone Dry Deposition Workshop

OCTOBER 5-6, 2017

at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University

This workshop aims to facilitate collaboration among the scientific communities that measure and model ozone dry deposition to the terrestrial biosphere and its relevance to atmospheric chemistry, canopy processes, and surface-atmosphere exchange.

A review paper on ozone dry deposition processes is planned as an outcome of this workshop;  all participants are asked to identify key content for inclusion in this review paper (e.g., knowns and unknowns).

All participants are encouraged to bring posters even if speaking; multiple abstract submissions for posters per participant are allowed.

POSTER DIMENSIONS are 40 inches x 30 inches, either landscape or portrait.  The setup includes an easel with a plain white posterboard that can be flipped either horizontal ( 40 wide x 30 tall ) or vertical ( 30 wide x 40 tall  ) so presenters are free to choose their preferred layout.

Registration for in-person attendance closed on Thurs SEPTEMBER 7.  The hotel room block also closed September 7.  Remote access registration closed on September 22.

Workshop objectives:

  • Compile existing observational datasets of ozone deposition (direct + indirect approaches); plan for their long-term archival
  • Take stock of modeling methods (including stomatal vs. nonstomatal pathways) and identify key uncertainties
  • Prioritize measurements of meteorological, chemical, and biological variables to constrain the strength and variability of ozone dry deposition; begin to determine locations best suited for long-term ozone dry deposition monitoring sites
  • Identify opportunities for remote sensing and aircraft measurements to provide constraints on the ozone depositional sink and its impacts on land-atmosphere fluxes of carbon, water, and other trace gases.


Airports. Lamont visitors can use any of the area airports: Newark Liberty International Airport in NJ or LaGuardia or JFK in NY.

Ground Transportation.  We recommend coordinating with colleagues if you will be arriving at similar times at the area airports, particularly if you are using Frontier Limo as they charge the same rate for 2-3 people per car.  For additional passengers, rates increase because they send a larger car, but this can still be an economical option for sharing with a larger group.

Frontier Limo: Newark-$84, JFK-$108, LGA -$98, NYC-NY-$92 prices don’t include parking, tolls, tax or gratuity. 845-222-6196, 1-888-394-3407 toll free or email Frontierlimo at gmail dot com

Luna Limo: Newark-$74, JFK-$102, LGA-$95, plus 15% gratuity, tolls, tax and parking. 1-888-222-3033 toll free or 201-509-6686 or email lunalimo at aol dot com

Driving to Lamont:  Free parking is available for the event.  Please see the campus map. The meeting is in Monell, so the closest lot is the one in front of the Oceanography building.   There is a guard shack at the entrance to Lamont campus.  Please stop and tell the guard you are here for the “Dry Dep Workshop”.  Follow the road past the Comer building (where lunch will be served) and turn right up the hill to reach the Oceanography parking lot.

Hotel. A room block is available at the Holiday Inn Orangeburg in Rockland County NY until SEPTEMBER 7.  The rate is $115 including taxes.  Please make reservations online via the group block booking link or by calling the front desk (845) 359-7000, and be sure to mention the “Ozone Dry Dep. Workshop” or use the three letter code ODD.  The hotel shuttle will take guests back and forth from Lamont.

Meals.  Lunch will be served both days in the Comer building (see campus map).  Coffee breaks will be mid-morning and mid-afternoon.  There is no breakfast, so be sure to eat before arriving.  The Thursday evening conference dinner is at 14 and Hudson in Piermont, NY.
