FIRST CIRCULAR

The Third International Workshop “Spectroscopy and Dynamics of Ozone and Related Atmospheric Species” will be held in Reims, France from October 4th to October 6th 2017, in the conference hall of the Hotel « De La Paix ».

The Workshop is organized by the « Groupe de Spectroscopie Moléculaire et Atmosphérique» (GSMA) laboratory of the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne and the « Centre National de Recherche Scientifique » (CNRS, UMR 7331).

Scientific program / topics

Contributions will take the form of oral presentations and will cover the following topics:

- Laboratory measurements ( IR , MW, UV - ranges ) and spectral analyses of ozone and of molecules involved in the ozone atmospheric cycle.

- Electronic structure calculations, potential-energy, dipole moment surfaces and non-adiabatic effects in ozone.
- Theoretical models for describing the ozone rovibrational states.
- Ozone dynamics: formation, decomposition, and photodissociation.
- Isotopic effects in ozone.
- Chemical reactivity along the ozone cycle, in situ atmospheric balloon and satellite measurements.
- Databases related to ozone spectroscopy and dynamics.

Conference venue

All the Workshop sessions will take place at the conference facilities of the Hotel « De La Paix » http://www.bestwestern.fr/fr/hotel-Reims,Best-Western-Hotel-De-La-Paix,93385)
