Several groups in North America and Europe independently developed plans for field experiments in the summer of 2004, aimed at developing a better understanding of the factors that shape air quality in their respective countries and the remote regions of the North Atlantic.
While each of these programs has regionally focused goals and deployments they share many of the same goals and objectives and the proposed study areas overlap significantly. ICARTT was formed to take advantage of this synergy by planning and executing a series of coordinated experiments to study the emissions of aerosol and ozone precursors, their chemical transformations and removal during transport to and over the North Atlantic.
Although a number of platforms and groups that participated in ICARTT have already met to discuss their data, this will be the first time that the entire ICARTT community has been together since the completion of intensive data collection activities. On August 9-12, 2005, the University of New Hampshire and the AIRMAP Consortium will host the ICARTT 2005 Data Analysis Workshop centered on all the group participants in ICARTT. We suspect that there will be a large turnout for this meeting and with a lot to cover, we need to plan the workshop carefully.
Please click here to download a copy of the Draft Agenda. The workshop agenda is set up in a manner to reflect requested AGU/AAAR sessions and Themes related to those sessions. The "Presentation Team" for each day will be responsible for selecting the 15 minute oral presentations (~5 per session). If you would like to be considered for an oral presentation in one of the sessions, please contact the relevant "underlined" members of the Presentation Team and supply them with a title and brief abstract by June 29. This will assist the team in selecting appropriate oral presentations. Please remember the talks need to be "ICARTT" relevant, not individual platform based.
If you are submitting an oral or poster presentation please copy your request to the session leaders to Fred Fehsenfeld (Fred.C.Fehsenfeld@noaa.gov).
The workshop will be held in the Granite State Room, Memorial Union Building at the University of New Hampshire.

in the Durham-Portsmouth location and may have your favorite place to stay.

us know where it is so we can contact you with any last minute changes.
Note: When we set the dates for the Workshop in December the NEC had 80 rooms available. We booked them all for the ICARTT Data Analysis Workshop but realize there may not be enough space for all the attendees so we have reserved rooms at the other 4 hotels at the government per diem rate (or less).
We plan to have a clambake at the Seacoast Science Center,Rye, N.H, on Wednesday, August 10 after the meeting. Fosters Downeast Clambake would be providing the food. To see the buffet menu, click here. This would be the same venue we had in 2002 and 2004. Cost would be $35 along with a cash bar. Please check the box on the registration page if you have interest in attending. Payment will be charged with your registration fee.
A registration fee of $50 per day ($30 on Friday) will be charged to workshop participants to cover costs for room rental, breaks, audio visual and other cost associated with the workshop.
There are 3 choices of airports to fly into: Boston, MA; Manchester, NH; or Portland, ME. Boston (Logan) will have the greatest availability of flights. Manchester is probably the easiest.
