The Comprehensive Atmospheric Modeling Program (CAMP) in the College of Science will present the 10th annual Atmospheric Transport and Dispersion Modeling Conference Aug. 1 to 3 in Enterprise Hall on the Fairfax Campus.

CAMP director Zafer Boybeyi is the conference chair, and a number of Mason researchers will present at the conference, including Boybeyi, Jozsef Bakosi, Fernando Camelli, Joseph Chang, Yasemin Ezber and Pasquale Franzese. Other presenters and attendees will come from research laboratories, government agencies, universities and private companies around the world.

Mason has been at the forefront of developing technology for modeling the release of hazardous agents into the atmosphere, and the conference is perhaps one of the premier gatherings of its kind in the country.

In addition to Mason, conference sponsors are the Joint Science and Technology Office for Chemical and Biological Defense, Defense Threat Reduction Agency; the Office of the Federal Coordinator for Meteorology; and the Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Division.
