Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to apply for the Gordon Research Seminar on Climate Engineering, to be held June 25-26, 2022 at Sunday River in Newry, Maine. The conference was originally planned for 2020, but moved due to COVID-19. If you had previously applied for the 2020 conference, please be sure to apply again.

The Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) on Climate Engineering is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas. The 2022 Gordon Research Seminar on Climate Engineering is focused on bridging physical and social sciences in the interdisciplinary field of radiation management approaches. Gordon Research Seminars are 2-day meetings which take place on the Saturday and Sunday just prior to the start of the associated Gordon Research Conference. The program will consist of an introductory Keynote session, two poster sessions, and three oral sessions with ample time for discussion. We are excited to confirm Dr. Holly Buck from the University at Buffalo as our Keynote Speaker.

The meeting will focus on a variety of potential climate engineering methods, including but not limited to: stratospheric aerosol addition, marine cloud brightening, surface albedo modification, and cirrus cloud thinning. We welcome abstracts spanning processes, impacts, methodologies, and disciplines. We understand that we live in uncertain times, so we’d like to be as clear as possible regarding the timeline. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Submit an abstract by March 25, 2022 to be considered for an oral presentation.
A detailed program will be posted by April 25, 2022.
Applications for the meeting will be accepted until May 28, 2022.
Registration can be completed (and fees paid) up to 3 weeks before the meeting.

Your timely registration will help us organize the best meeting possible!

The Gordon Research Conference (GRC) on Climate Engineering (June 26 - July 1, 2022) will immediately follow the GRS and attendance at both is strongly encouraged. Please note there is a separate application for the GRC, and more information can be found using the link above.

International applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible to allow adequate time for visa processing. Eligible applicants may apply for the Carl Storm Underrepresented Minority Fellowship. Limited travel and registration fee support is available. If your attendance would be conditional on receiving travel support please email us separately.

Please find more information about the current GRC COVID-19 protocols at the following link:

Please help us spread the word by forwarding this information to any early career researchers in your network who are working on climate engineering. Any questions may be directed to the GRS chairs, Katie Dagon (kdagon@ucar.edu) and Daniele Visioni (dv224@cornell.edu).
