The Future of Atmospheric Boundary Layer Observing, Understanding, and Modeling: Proceedings of a Workshop (2018)

Improved observations of the atmospheric boundary layer (BL) and its interactions with the ocean, land, and ice surfaces have great potential to advance science on a number of fronts, from improving forecasts of severe storms and air quality to constraining estimates of trace gas emissions and transport. Understanding the BL is a crucial component of model advancements, and increased societal demands for extended weather impact forecasts (fro... More >>

Strategies for Effective Improvements to the BioWatch System: Proceedings of a Workshop (2018)

BioWatch is the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) system for providing advanced warning of an aerosolized biological attack. This system uses collectors strategically positioned across the country to monitor the air for biological threats. As currently deployed, BioWatch collectors draw air through filters that field technicians collect and transport to public laboratories, where professional technicians analyze the material collected o...

Atlantic Offshore Renewable Energy Development and Fisheries: Proceedings of a Workshop -- in Brief (2018)

Offshore wind is a growing source of renewable energy in the United States, with leases in place along the Atlantic coast for future wind farm development. The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) is charged with overseeing environmentally and economically responsible development of energy resources in the United States. In support of this mission, BOEM engaged a steering committee of the National Academies to convene a workshop to explor... More >>

ChemRxivPublishing in the Age of Preprint Servers: Proceedings of a Symposium—in Brief (2018)

Preprint servers provide a platform for publishing research results before they have undergone peer review. Proponents point to the advantages of much more quickly disclosing information and data than the time it takes to complete the peer review and journal publication process. Preprint servers have been accepted publishing platforms in the physics and mathematics communities for over 25 years and in the biology community since 2013, but n... More >>
