XV International Symposium "Atmospheric and Ocean Optics, Atmospheric physics"

June 22-29, 2008, Krasnoyarsk, Russia

First Announcement

In 2008, June 22–29, the Institute of Atmospheric Optics of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (SB RAS) will organize XV International Symposium "Atmospheric and Ocean Optics. Atmospheric Physics". It will be held on board the ship Aleksandr Matrosov cruising on the River Yenisei. 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 and organizing by academician Vladimir Zuev.

Symposium Chairs
Gelii A. Zherebtsov,
