ACE-1 Data Workshop Summary
3-7 March 1997
Forty five participants from 4 countries took part in the second
ACE-1 data workshop. The main goal of this workshop was to promote
the integration of data from multiple research groups. Following
the successful format at the first ACE-1 data meeting, PIs presented
their data in poster format. Each half day session consisted
of one or two brief plenary sessions followed by small group meetings.
At the end of the week the group leaders summarized the small
The working groups and their conveners included:
Nucleation working group (McMurry & Clarke)
Lagrangian dynamics (Lenschow)
Local mass closure (Quinn)
Local scattering closure (Rood)
Local hygroscopic closure (Swietlicki)
- Local CCN closure (Hudson & Gras)
- Radiative Column closure (Clarke)
MacQuarie Island measurements (Kreidenweis)
Lagrangian chemical analysis (Huebert)
Intercomparison exercises (Huebert, Howell)
Photochemical oxidation mechanisms (Sievering, Saltzman)
General ACE-1 issues:
ACE-1 Data Archive
Steve Williams reviewed the ACE-1 data archive. Most data
sets have now been submitted. Missing data sets were discussed.
ACE-1 JGR special issue
The ACE-1 JGR special issue deadline was moved to June 1.
When submitting manuscripts please:
- Include in the acknowledgments the following:
This research is a contribution to the International Global Atmospheric
Chemistry (IGAC) Core project of the International Geosphere-Biosphere
Programme (IGBP) and is part of the IGAC Aerosol Characterization
- In your cover letter to JGR, state that your manuscript is
intended for the ACE-1 Special Section. Also include the names
of 5-6 potential A HREFerees. This list should include a designation
as to whether the suggested reviewer is (in any way) involved
with ACE-1. Also, institutional conflicts of interest must be
avoided when recommending A HREFerees. JGR's goal is for AT LEAST
1 of the 2 A HREFerees on special section manuscripts to be outside
the special section authorship and/or science team.
- Send a copy of your cover letter and manuscript to Tim Bates
and Barry Huebert.
- Manuscripts submitted by the 1 June 1997 deadline, that are
deemed acceptable by the outside reviewers and editor, and that
meet the JGR deadlines for resubmission will be included in the
ACE-1 special section of JGR Atmospheres. Manuscripts that are
submitted after that date and are fortunate enough to make it
through the review process quickly, will also be included.
- While JGR editors encourage the writing of concise manuscripts,
papers should not be artificially separated to avoid excess page
charges or to provide an opportunity for a large number of publications
(by same first author or shared first-authorship). In the case
where papers may incur excess page charges but have been judged
to be of appropriate length (following revision or "as is"),
the authors may submit a written request that excess page charges
be waived. Please keep in mind that all manuscripts must be judged
to "stand alone". It is of course expected that authors
of special section manuscripts will rely on and A HREFer to other
papers in the special section. However, the submission of data
papers without a significant interpretative focus is discouraged.
An ACE-1 special session will be held at the IAMAS meeting
in Melbourne, Australia during the period of 1-9 July 1997.
