The Eighth Joint Conference on Applications of Air Pollution Meteorology with the Air and Waste Management Association was held in conjunction with the AMS 74th Annual Meeting in Nashville, Tennessee, on 23–28 January 1994. Sessions at the meeting covered a broad range of topics including the dispersion environment, meteorology in emissions determination, long-range and mesoscale pollutant transport and fate, meteorology and photochemistry, advanced dispersion models and modeling systems, model evaluation, complex flows affecting dispersion near structures, and coastal and complex terrain issues. Papers followed some recurrent themes but many reported applications of new technology that provide new opportunities to see atmospheric characteristics and complexities for the first time. Innovative techniques were described in data analysis and presentation and modeling.
