Dear Colleagues,

We cordially invite you to present your research at the 16th AOGS annual meeting. The meeting will be held from July 28th – August 2nd 2019 in Singapore.  Abstract submissions will be available from November 20th 2018 through February 12th, 2019.  More information can be found on the meeting’s website:

AOGS 16th Annual Meeting 28 Jul to 2 Aug, 2019 Singapore Introduction to AOGS. Asia Oceania Geosciences Society (AOGS) was established in 2003 to promote geosciences and its application for the benefit of humanity, specifically in Asia and Oceania and with an overarching approach to global issues.

Session description

Thunderstorms, lightning and their effects on human society

Lightning is a global natural hazard, lethal and destructive on short time scales and with important climatic effects on longer time-scales (through NOx production and forest fire ignition). It is accompanied by severe weather, hail and flash flooding that often cause significant economic losses. The intensity and nature of convective storms and lightning in future climate conditions are not well understood or predicted. Human societies are becoming more vulnerable to severe weather and tropical storms, therefore lightning prediction and detection are essential for aviation, shipping and public safety.

We invite contributions dealing with the physical and chemical processes in thunderstorms and lightning and their atmospheric effects. We seek contributions dealing with convective storms, cloud electrification, numerical weather forecasting of thunderstorms and lightning, and regional and global detection networks. Of special interest will be works on global lightning patterns in an era of climate change (especially in the Asia-Oceania region), satellite-based studies of thunderstorms and other remote-sensing technologies, as well as urban effects on lightning.
