Please join us next year for the 2018 BASC Symposium, to be held on February 2, 2018 at the David Brower Center in Berkeley with a kickoff event the afternoon of February 1.

The goal of the BASC Symposium is to foster interaction among the community of atmospheric-science researchers and students from UC Berkeley and surrounding institutions. We invite participants from around the San Francisco Bay Area including (but not limited to) UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Santa Cruz, Stanford, San Francisco State University, San Jose State University, NASA-AMES, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, SRI, USGS, Bay Area Air Quality Management District, US Environmental Protection Agency, and the California Air Resources Board.
