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 47th Global Monitoring Annual Conference will be held May 21-22, 2019.

Oral Presentations

For oral presenters, the conference sessions will have 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 insure your presentation will fit in the 12 minute time limit.


For poster presenters, 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. We will collect posters from the presenters 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 21st for the poster session that afternoon.

Dr. Guy Brasseur

Dr. Guy Brasseur is a world-renowned leader in atmospheric sciences. Currently serving appointments at Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Hamburg and the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, CO, Dr. Brasseur continues his pursuits in global change, climate variability, chemistry-climate relations, biosphere-atmosphere interactions, climate change, stratospheric ozone depletion, global air pollution, tropospheric ozone, and solar-terrestrial relations. He has led the development of complex models describing the formation and fate of chemical compounds in the stratosphere and troposphere. He has used climate and Earth system models to study the interactions between the biogeochemical and the climate system, has authored or co-authored over 200 publications in the peer-reviewed literature, and has contributed to the publication of several books. He served as Director of the Atmospheric Chemistry Division at NCAR and Editor of the Journal of Geophysical Research – Atmospheres in the early 1990s, and later as the chair of the international Atmospheric Chemistry Project of the International Geosphere-Biosphere Program. Most recently he served as Chair of the Joint Scientific Committee of the World climate Research Program.
