XIII Joint International Symposium "Atmospheric and Ocean Optics, Atmospheric physics"

July 2-7, 2006, Tomsk, Russia

First Announcement

In 2006, July 2–7 in Tomsk the Institute of Atmospheric Optics of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (SB RAS) will organize XIII International Symposium "Atmospheric and Ocean Optics. Atmospheric Physics".

The Symposium is a traditional meeting of atmospheric and ocean optics and atmospheric physics community, which has a long history as a successor of the symposiums on Laser Propagation in Atmosphere and Laser Remote Sensing of Atmosphere beginning with the early seventies of last century and organizing by academician Vladimir Zuev.
