Info-Emails from the IAMAS Bureau

Since 2012 edited information emails are sent to all IAMAS commissions and national correspondents to spread information, ideally in a bi-monthly frequency. Click the entries in the table below, in reverse chronological order, to obtain the respective pdf-file.

In addition, information about IAMAS and its scientific meetings is regularly contained in the monthly issues of the  IUGG E- Journal  (click for the full selection since 2001).


In February 2015 vice-president John Turner announced Yuan Wang as the recipient of the IAMAS Early Career Scientist Medal 2015 for "his seminal contributions in elucidating the role of natural and man-derived atmospheric particles in air quality, atmospheric dynamics and climate".

Previously, IUGG had announced Sir Brian Hoskins, IAMAS president 1991-95, as the first recipient of the IUGG Gold Medal. Furthermore, IAMAS colleagues John Burrows, Andrea Flossmann, Sophie Godin-Beekmann and Jianping Li are among the six newly elected IUGG Fellows.

The next IAMAS-Assembly is part of the 26th IUGG General Assembly in Prague, CZ.

Please check the specific IAMAS symposia and the IAMAS components within the Union- and joint Inter-Association symposia. Deadline for abstract submission is 31 Jan. 2015.

At its meeting on 11 July 2013 , the IAMAS Executive Committee approved a Resolution regarding atmospheric sciences within the new "Future Earth" initiative launched by ICSU (click for Resolution) as well as a Statement regarding Radiation Management as geoengineering method (click for Statement).
