This logo also appears on our registration page.

We will order 100 shirts, but most of the shirts available to buy at the meeting will be black or white short-sleeved T-shirts in mostly Large sizes, with possibly a few polos. All other kinds and sizes of shirts should be ordered before 21 May and then picked up at the meeting or later. You do not have to go to the meeting to order a shirt. The order goes in on 21 May, so order exactly what you want before this from the list below.

25th Anniversary CEDAR Shirts in sizes small to X-large (2X-large and 3x-large are $3 extra for short-sleeved T-shirts and $5 extra for polo shirts or long sleeves) where T-shirts have logos on the front 'pocket area' and the back, while polos only have logos on the front pocket:

  1. $8.50 white short-sleeved T-shirt (also available at the meeting in large)
  2. $10.50 black short-sleeved T-shirt (also available at the meeting in large)
  3. $12.50 for white long-sleeved T-shirt

  5. $12.00 for white short-sleeved polo shirt (may be at the meeting in large)
  6. $14.50 for black short-sleeved polo shirt (may be at the meeting in large)
  7. $26.00 for white or black long-sleeved polo shirt

Please add $3 extra for 2X or 3X in the short-sleeved T-shirts, and $5 extra for 2X or 3X in the polos and any long-sleeved shirts.

Please make checks out to Barbara Emery and send to Barbara Emery, HAO/NCAR, 3080 Center Green, boulder, CO 80301. We can only accept cash or checks for the shirts, and payment before the meeting would be greatly appreciated. Please email Kendra Greb Kendra Greb clear directions of what shirt(s) you want in what sizes. The shirts can be picked up at the 2010 Workshop or mailed to you after the workshop.


(2) CEDAR Poster Abstracts, Dorm Lodging, and Student and CEDAR Post Doc Registrations due this Friday May 14 - $75 late fee imposed Monday May 17.


From Barbara Emery (emery@ucar.edu).

Late fees of $75 are imposed for students and CEDAR Post-docs on Monday May 17, where registration is nominally due this Friday May 14. The reason for this is the student housing at the dorm must be ordered by May 14. This year, all dormitory rooms are doubles. Non-students can register for the dorms ($42 per person per night, or $84/room per night), and will owe NCAR $42 per night to be paid at the registration table. Non-student registration late fees of $75 are imposed on Tuesday June 1 where registration is due Friday May 28.

However, anyone who wants to present a poster at the workshop, must register by this Friday because the abstracts are due Friday 14 May (with a grace period of the weekend). Abstracts can only be submitted with a current registration form either during the registration process or afterwards. Please register promptly.

(6) Post-Doc in Middle Atmosphere Dynamics at University of Bath, UK, due date 18 May.


From Nicholas Mitchell (N.J.Mitchell@bath.ac.uk).

POST DOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE in Dynamics of the Middle Atmosphere

Centre for Space Atmospheric and Oceanic Science Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering The University of Bath, UK

Salary: UK pounds 29,853 - 35,646 (~US$ 44,00-53,000)

Fixed-term 3-year appointment, available immediately

Closing date: May 18, 2010

Applications are invited for a research associate to work in the Centre for Space, Atmospheric and Oceanic Science at the University of Bath as part of a NERC-funded project supervised by Prof Nicholas Mitchell of Bath and Dr Robert Hibbins of The British Antarctic Survey. The post is available immediately.

The project will study the dynamics of the stratosphere and mesosphere using data from ground-based radars at polar, middle and equatorial latitudes and from satellites (particularly NASA's Aura). The scientific studies will focus on: i) the role of the mountains of the Southern Andes and Antarctic Peninsula as generators of gravity waves that reach the stratosphere and mesosphere, ii) the effect of the stratospheric polar vortex in exciting and filtering the field of gravity waves ascending to the mesosphere, iii) gravity-wave/tidal coupling and iv) the role of the quasi-biennial oscillation in controlling the inter-hemispheric propagation of planetary waves.

The work of the Centre is strongly international and the research associate will be expected to take part in international collaborations and to present their work at international meetings.

The successful candidate will have a PhD in physics, meteorology, mathematics or engineering and good data-analysis skills. Experience of atmospheric physics would be an advantage. The University of Bath regularly features in lists of the top UK universities. The university is located about 2 km from the centre of the historic city of Bath. The Centre for Space, Atmospheric and Oceanic Science consists of 11 academic staff and 31 researchers and postgraduate students (http://www.bath.ac.uk/elec-eng/research/csaos/).

For more information, please contact Prof Nicholas Mitchell by email at N.J.Mitchell@bath.ac.uk

This award is presented annually to honor an individual young scientist from a developing nation for making outstanding contributions to research in Sun-Earth Systems Science that further the understanding of both plasma physical processes and their applications for the benefit of society. The award is open to scientists who received their Ph.D. degree after June 1, 2003 and currently live and work in developing nations. Consideration is to be given to candidates who have overcome obstacles in attaining their research objectives.

The Space Physics and Aeronomy Section will invite the recipient to present a paper at AGU’s Fall Meeting in San Francisco, California. Travel funds and living expenses will be provided to attend the meeting, where the recipient will also receive a certificate of appreciation and three years’ membership to AGU. The award will be presented at the SPA dinner, for which the awardee will receive a complimentary ticket. The awardee will also be announced in /Eos/.

Nominations should be prepared by an AGU member or other geoscientist who is knowledgeable of the candidate’s qualifications and include the following information:

• nominator’s name and title, address and contact numbers;

• nominee’s name and title, institutional affiliation, and address;

• a statement (not to exceed 2 pages) of the action(s)

or achievement(s) for which the candidate is nominated;

• two letters of support from AGU members or from other recognized geoscientists belonging to institutions other than that of the nominee;

• a curriculum vitae (not to exceed 3 pages).

A list of previous recipients of the award can be found at:

http://www.agu.org/about/honors/section_fg/spa/

The deadline for receipt of the nomination package is *1 June 2010*.
