First Announcement:

The International Ozone Commission (IOC) of the International Association for Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences (IAMAS) announces that the next International Quadrennial Ozone Symposium "Kos 2004" will be held in Kos, Greece from 1 - 8 June 2004.

The Symposium will be held at five star Kipriotis Hotels at Kos, Greece. The mean air temperature of Kos in June is 24,7°C and the average relative humidity is 57,6%.

Kos is close to Rhodes (2 hours with Flying Dolphins) and about 40' from the Turkish coast.

Scientific topics:

The Symposium will solicit scientific papers on all aspects of atmospheric ozone such as:

  • Observations and analyses of total and vertical ozone distributions
  • Observation techniques and inter-comparisons
  • Tropospheric ozone in particular, past and future budgets and trends
  • Observations and budgets of minor constituents related to atmospheric ozone
  • Ozone chemistry
  • Model calculations dynamics and chemistry coupling
  • Ozone - climate interactions
  • Ozone and ultraviolet radiation

The Scientific Program Committee will review the submitted papers before the acceptance for presentation. The presentation of a paper should be oral or on a poster. The detailed information on paper submission will be publicized in the second announcement to be issued in May 2003.
