Propagation Through and Characterization of Atmospheric and Oceanic Phenomena

Propagation Through and Characterization of Atmospheric and Oceanic Phenomena

25 - 28 June 2018
Wyndham Orlando Resort International Drive, Orlando, Florida United States

pcAOP is a forum for the presentation of research in the physics of light propagation, optical remote sensing, or EO/IR effects in either the atmosphere or ocean, to include distributed volume turbulence, gravity waves, vortex shedding, stably stratified turbulence, persistent eddies, and cloud/aerosol/vapor scattering and absorption, refractive effects, such as mirages and over-the-horizon viewing, as well as characterization of these phenomena. 

In this forum, we discuss the physics of light propagating through the atmosphere and ocean to include large-scale meteorological and oceanic phenomena that include distributed volume turbulence, gravity waves, vortex shedding, stably stratified turbulence, persistent eddies, absorption and scattering by clouds, vapor, aerosols, and hydrosols, mirages, and over-the -horizon viewing., We also discuss applications in optical remote sensing using lidar and passive sensors. Since the study of propagation through atmospheric and oceanic phenomena is a rapidly developing field of research, this forum expedites collaboration and cultivates a multidisciplinary exchange of information designed to expand our understanding of the full complexity and interactions of distributed volume effects, drawing upon the most recent results from the fields of atmospheric optics, boundary layer physics, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics, meteorology, adaptive optics, laser sciences and singular optics.
